In these critical times, it is essential to come together and show solidarity with our fellow citizens in Guerrero. Our commitment is to help affected families move forward and emerge stronger from this tragedy,” emphasized Alejandro Soberón Kuri.
The donation, facilitated through the Walmart Foundation Mexico, will be delivered to the victims in the state of Guerrero by Mexico’s Defence Ministry benefiting those who have suffered material and human losses, particularly in Acapulco.
Gisela Noble, Director of Walmart Foundation Mexico, added: “At the Walmart Foundation Mexico, our focus is on supporting the community in Acapulco. We have partnered with the Mexico City Grand Prix team to deliver a donation of 50 tons of food supplies. We have also set up collection points at our Bodega Aurrerá, Sam’s Club, Walmart Express, and Walmart Supercenter stores in Mexico City, Mexico state, Querétaro, and Puebla, which will remain open until 5 November to receive donations and distribute them to the victims.”
The Mexico City Grand Prix and Walmart Mexico & Central America invite everyone to get involved in one of the many social initiatives that have been launched to support those who need it the most in these challenging times.
