Wal-Mart encourages its employees to volunteer for worthy service projects.

In other parts of the country they have helped stock a food bank. Wal-Mart associates volunteered to collect food and then delivered it to the food pantry.

They have painted and cleaned a day care center in a church. Wal-Mart also provides money and grants to help the community.

Mrs. Moore is working with the Fulton store to help them expand their community service.

The concept of a partnership between non-profits and business can expand service to their communities, she said.

The business can assist the non-profit in their service to the community.

Other businesses have assisted community non-profits.

Banks have closed their branches and their employees have painted and repaired museums and civic buildings, school and parks.
