Wal-Mart Assits Pahrump With Opening

PAHRUMP, Nev. - The opening of 155,000-square-foot Wal-Mart super center on Highway 160 in Pahrump last May came with an introduction to Wal-Mart's Good Works program, which encourages employees to volunteer with charities and educational organizations.

During the opening, Wal-Mart donated $11,500 to a dozen local entities, including $1,500 to the Nye County Sheriff's Office, $1,000 (each) to the Nye County School District, the Even Start Family Literacy Program, the Fifth District Court's Adult Drug Program, the Salvation Army of Pahrump, the United Way of Southern Nevada, the Pahrump Community Library, the Pahrump Senior Center, VFW Post 10054, and the Kiwanis Club. The Pahrump Little League and the Pahrump Valley Rotary Club also received $500. Store employees presented the checks.

"Our associates already are active participants in many good causes throughout the area," said Pahrump Store Manager Randy Harmon in a prepared statement. "We look forward to making an even greater impact in the future."
