At a school assembly on February 6th, 2020, representatives from the Walmart Transportation Office in Hermiston, Oregon presented Finley Elementary School with a $2,000 check! Private Fleet truck drivers for Walmart drove extra carefully during the week from July 20-July 26, 2019, and for every accident-free mile they drove during that week (313,943 miles), Walmart made a financial contribution to the school!

Through its "Miles for Education" program, Walmart is donating one cent for each accident-free mile driven by the drivers at each Walmart transportation office. A school in the home region of each transportation office will receive at least $1,000 and as much as $2,000, based on the safety performance of local drivers. During this year’s program, Walmart Transportation offices nationwide contributed more than $100,000 to schools in their communities.

Thank you, Walmart!
