The Brandon Burlsworth Foundation received a $75,000 grant from Walmart and the Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Program on Thursday.
The Foundation received the money after celebrating the launch for the DVD release of Greater, the story of Brandon Burlsworth.
The DVD will be in Walmart stores and on Walmart.com on Dec. 20.
$25,000 of the grant will be used to support the national Burlsworth Character and Sportsmanship Award. The remaining $50,000 will support Eyes of a Champion which addresses eye care for children across Arkansas.
