The Beaver Dam transportation office has chosen Wilson Elementary School to receive a $1,627 donation as part of Walmart’s commitment to education. Private Fleet truck drivers for Walmart are already among the safest drivers in the country. They drove extra carefully during the week from August 13 through August 19, 2016. For every accident-free mile they drove during that week, the Walmart Foundation made a financial contribution to local schools.

The Walmart Foundation is donating one cent for each accident-free mile driven by the drivers at each Walmart transportation office. A school in the home region of each transportation office will receive at least $1,000 and as much as $5,000, based on the safety performance of local drivers. During this year’s program, Walmart transportation offices nationwide raised more than $133,000 to give to schools in their communities.

“This is just one of the many ways Walmart supports education across the country,” said Jim Jansen, General Transportation Manager at the Beaver Dam Walmart distribution center. “It’s also a great way to engage all of our drivers in raising money for our local schools. This program serves as a great reminder to each of us that children are returning to classes and all drivers need to watch carefully for school buses and school children.”

Walmart’s Private Fleet is one of the largest in the United States and its more than 11,000 associates, including nearly 7,600 drivers, supporting more than 5,200 Walmart stores, Sam’s Club locations and Neighborhood Markets in the U.S.
