“This holiday, I wanted to share a small gift with all of you. In partnership with the Walmart Foundation, I’m excited to let each of you know that you will be receiving a $100 Walmart gift card to use on some toys and Christmas gifts this year,” said Smith-Schuster in a release. “I hope this will bring a sense joy and happiness to you and your families this holiday season!”
Boys and Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania CEO Dr. Lisa Abel-Palmieri said in the press release that about 70% of their members come from single-parent households. Abel-Palmieri thanked Smith-Schuster and his team for bringing some holiday cheer.
