New Sam's Club Opens In St. Tammany Parish

Stocks in this article: WMT

" Covington is a friendly and tradition-rich community, and we appreciate the warm welcome from Mayor Cooper and many, many others in the community," Cuevas said. "We have a talented group of associates who were hired locally, and I'm excited about the long-term relationships we are building in the community."

Sam's Club to Give $45,000 to Local Organizations

Sam's Club has a longstanding commitment to give back to the communities it serves, and the new Covington club is no different. In addition to a $20,000 grant to The Children's Museum of St. Tammany, associates from the local club have selected several local organizations to receive a total of $25,000 in grants from the Walmart Foundation.

Those organizations include the Blackhawk Flight Foundation, Boys and Girls Club of Covington, Covington Rotary Foundation, Food Bank of Covington, Guitars in the Classroom, Little Citizens Big Change, Louisiana Association of the Deaf, Madisonville Elementary, Mandeville Lions Club, Northlake Nature Center, St. Tammany Parish Children's Advocacy, St. Tammany Parish Humane Society and St. Tammany Parish SALT Council.

The new Sam's Club will also help fight hunger in the area by making regular product donations to the Greater Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans. As part of a nationwide collaboration between Sam's Club and Feeding America, Sam's Club donated more than 13 million pounds of food to Feeding America, the nation's largest hunger-relief charity.

The Covington Sam's Club is the third new club opened in southern Louisiana this year, following a club opening in Baton Rouge in January and Denham Springs in June, and will be the 13 th Sam's Club in Louisiana.  Along with parent company Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Sam's Club employs more than 35,000 associates in Louisiana and collected more than $477 million in state and local taxes through sales in 2011. The Walmart Foundation and Sam's Club Giving Program contributed $15.8 million to Louisiana non-profit organizations last year.
