Some products from Trenton Walmart to be donated after fire

BELLEVILLE — Following the fire at the Trenton Walmart [2] last Tuesday, the company’s head office says it plans to donate some of its inventory to charity.

Alex Robertson, a member of corporate affairs for Walmart Canada, says the company will be working closely with charity groups to help donate the inventory.

He said the company hasn’t decided which charity would get the donations, but that it would depend on who needs it. There was no indication on whether the charities would be local or not.

Robertson said that much of the food was contaminated from the smoke, and would have to be destroyed. Other non-food items that were badly damaged would also be destroyed.

He also said that the store would be re-opened “in a matter of weeks,”
