Evansville Walmart Employee Helps ‘Granted’ Ring in the Holidays
If you have ever worked at a grocery store, you know the terror of multiple-cart orders. Back when I worked at Buehler's Buy Low in Princeton, we would open a special register when the group homes did their shopping. I would actually see how fast I could check them out, so I could improve my items per minute scanned. I'm a nerd, I know.
Last week, the folks at Granted were able to purchase six cart loads of essentials for their Granted families. This shopping trip wasn't for a specific wish to granted. This was part of the extra services that Granted provides to their wish kids and families. Several organizations made this shopping trip possible: Ziemer Funeral Home, Prairie Farms Dairy, and the North First Ave. Walmart Neighborhood Market. Susan and Corey want to especially thank Quitta, she was the cashier that rang up the six carts, and a bystander named Shannon, that helped load everything into their vehicle.
Granted, formerly Wish Upon A Star, is a community based nonprofit agency located in Evansville Indiana. Serving a population area of over one million people, our organization grants wishes to children who reside in the areas of Southern Indiana, Southeastern Illinois and Western Kentucky.
