The Walmart Foundation awarded more than $193,000 to a half-dozen Nebraska nonprofits this week.

Six grants, ranging from $25,500 to $40,000, were presented Tuesday in Lincoln at the Walmart Supercenter, 8700 Andermatt Dr.

U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb, helped Walmart recognize the beneficiaries: Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Omaha, City Impact, Madonna School, Tabitha Inc., The Society of St. Andrew and TeamMates Mentoring Program - Lincoln.

Walmart and the Walmart Foundation look for organizations that address community needs and make a significant social impact on a local and state level, company officials said.

Walmart operates more than 44 locations throughout Nebraska, including 34 Walmart Supercenters, four Sam’s Clubs and six Omaha-area Walmart Neighborhood Markets. A seventh Omaha Neighborhood Market is being built on the site of the former Target on Saddle Creek Road and is expected to open later this year.

Walmart also is constructing a Sam’s Club at the Settlers Creek development near 72nd and Cornhusker Road in Papillion. The 138,000 square-foot warehouse store is expected to open this fall.
