'Give Every Child a Chance to Heal' for Wal-Mart new facility

Jan '08
The Northwest Arkansas Children's Shelter (NWACS) announced it is launching its “Give Every Child a Chance to Heal” capital campaign to create an endowment that will subsidize operating expenses for a new facility. Additionally, Wal-Mart Stores Inc has come forward as the first major supporter of this campaign, announcing a $2.5 million donation at a press conference held this morning at the shelter with members of the facility's board of directors, key donors and Wal-Mart representatives present.

“The work that the shelter does to help the youngest and most vulnerable people in our state is so important, and we hope that our gift will make it possible for more children to be served through expanded facilities and programs,” said Mike Duke, vice chairman of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. and honorary co-chairman of the shelter's capital campaign.

Established in 1993, NWACS serves an estimated 300 children annually, providing emergency shelter, educational and counseling services for children who are the victims of child abuse, sexual abuse and domestic violence. An on-site school and counseling services are provided for children who need them during their stay.

“We are very grateful for this generous donation,” said Todd Simmons, who with his wife, Shelley, serves as co-chairman of the shelter's current capital campaign. “It's unfortunate that there are children in our area who need the services provided here, but for those kids whose circumstances bring them here, it is a place where they will be cared for and nurtured. This gift will help us to reach more children who are in desperate need of help and provide them with more options for care.”
