Walmart Campaign 2018: Store Stories

Breakfast club of canada members at Waterloo Ontario

The heart of the campaign lies with its Associates – Waterloo, ON

Malissa Mota is a true Breakfast Club of Canada ambassador. As Charity leader, Claims Associate and Walmart employee for the past eight years, she’s inspiring her colleagues to go above and beyond- all for the kids.

“Hearing that kids are going to school without anything to eat is heartbreaking. It’s something we take for granted. Many of the associates at this store can relate to this cause because they have their own children. You can feel the connection in their voices when they speak about it.”

Malissa and her colleagues believe that every child should begin their day with a nutritious breakfast. For this reason, they’ve gone above and beyond to raise money, and awareness, for Breakfast Club of Canada. The store produced their own campaign-specific t-shirts.

“One of our Greeters, Diane, is a part-time clown who also sings and makes balloon animals. We have her at the entrance of the store greeting customers and selling balloon animals as a way of raising additional funds.”

Cashiers and associates at this Waterloo store embody what it means to give back to their community and all of us at the Club are deeply touched by the passion and support we feel from the Walmart team.
