Eastside HS receives $1,000 grant from Walmart

COVINGTON, Ga. -- Alisa Echols, a teacher within the Career Technical & Agricultural Education program at Eastside High School, recently received a $1,000 grant from the Covington Walmart.

Echols got the money from the Walmart Community Grants Program. She said it will be used to buy popcorn and cotton candy machines to assist Eastside's Career Technical Instruction students with their fundraisers.

"We have several events the students can attend throughout the school year, and that takes money," Echols said. "By purchasing these machines, the students can now sell popcorn and cotton candy after school and on weekends."

Walmart's Community Grants Program was established to help support local needs of the communities where the big box chain has its stores. Visit foundation.walmart.com for more information.
