Walmart is allowing people to donate clothes and accessories at their local department stores to help with the fallout from the hurricanes.
The company has partnered with the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) to offer free clothing at its locations across the country.
The program is available to those who can prove they are low income.
The first 100 donors receive $10 in free clothing.
More: Walmart will donate $10 million of clothing and $5 million in free goods to local nonprofits, including disaster relief, after the hurricane, the company said in a statement.
The NLIHC will then use the funds to help local low-income families rebuild.
Walmart said it will work with local organizations that are affected by the storm, such as the Salvation Army and the Salvation Corporation, to ensure they are well-prepared for the aftermath of the hurricane.
Walmart is also providing $10,000 worth of free merchandise and supplies to its charity partners.
According to the company, donations of clothing are a great way to help families recover from the hurricane that hit Puerto Rico and Florida on October 5.
A statement from Walmart on the partnership read: We are grateful to NLIHCC, the Salvation Society, and Walmart for their leadership and assistance in supporting our local disaster relief efforts.
We are also grateful to the NLIHS community for their efforts, as they are the primary source of food and water to millions of families in the United States and around the world.
We’re also grateful for the support from local businesses, who are helping to provide the goods and services needed to help these families rebuild their lives.
“In the aftermath, we will continue to support NLIHHCC and NLICC’s community partners with free products and resources to help them recover from these devastating events, including food and emergency supplies to help ease the impact of the storm on our communities,” the statement said.
In a statement, the NCLIC called on Walmart to continue its support of local charities and said it was working with Walmart to expand the program.
“In light of the devastating hurricanes, and in the wake of Hurricane Irma, Walmart is working with local disaster recovery organizations to expand its programs and support for disaster relief,” NCLIHC Executive Director James R. Salladino said.
“We ask Walmart to commit to supporting local disaster response and recovery organizations in the months and years ahead.”
