Rob Brothers of the Walton Family Foundation said Tuesday that the focus in the Delta will be on education, with towns as “laboratories” for how grants can make a difference.

The Walton Family Foundation of Bentonville will significantly increase its grants in Northwest Arkansas and the Delta over the next six years, with plans to invest $302 million in what it considers its "home region."

The article implies that if you drive down the street in downtown Helena you can see the positive impact of the grant money. Guess I drove down the wrong street.

When you stopped at the red light and didn't get carjacked, that was the positive impact.

Thanks to the Walton Foundation!

Ragmop,

The Phillips County Boys and Girls Club is one of the best in the state. I believe that the Waltons have donated to it as well.
