CAC competing for $20,000 in Walmart's Holiday Makeover

Updated:
INDEPENDENCE, KANSAS -

The Community Access Center has been chosen as a final participant in Walmart's “Food Pantry Holiday Makeover”. There were over 1,000 applications and 168 have moved on to the final part of the competition.

Seventy-five pantries across the United States will be awarded $20,000 each to help with infrastructure and equipment.

Votes are made by Facebook users. Voting started December 2, 2014.

The very first day of voting the Community Access Center made the leader board and has stayed in the top 75 ever since. However, votes are quickly adding up from other pantries across the country, so we need to make sure everyone is voting to help bring the award home to Independence.

Voting ends at midnight on December 12, 2014. Participants can vote online one time every 24 hours. Voting resets from the time the participant last voted.

“This is a great opportunity for the Community Access Center” stated Debi Kreutzman, Community Relations Manager for the Kansas Food Bank. “And it is an easy way for the community to show their support with just a click of the mouse! We are thrilled that this opportunity became available from Walmart to help our local organization.”

The Community Access Center will add a walk-in cooler with the award if they end in the top 75. So votes are imperative!

To vote, simply go to www.walmart.com/holidaymakeover. There will be a search box to search KS or Kansas. From, there, click on Community Access Center. Simply click the VOTE button and log on to Facebook to complete the voting process. Participants can then “share” on their Facebook page encouraging friends to vote as well.
