The Camino Community Center, INTech Camp for Girls and Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids have all benefited from Walmart’s recently concluded upgrades to the Supercenter at 7735 N. Tryon St.

The three Charlotte-based nonprofit groups will share a total of $31,000 as part of Walmart’s celebration of its University City store, the Charlotte Observer recently reported.

The Camino Community Center, located near the Walmart at 201 Stetson Dr., provides numerous services to low-income families and individuals.

These include a primary-care clinic, mental-health services, food pantry, thrift store, small-business incubator and other programs.

INTech Camp for Girls seeks to involve area youth in tech fields through hands-on activities, camps, school clubs and contact with women in the field.

Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids provides all-expenses-paid five-day visits at Walt Disney World to terminally ill or chronically disabled children ages 5-12 and their immediate family.

Walmart recently finished redoing the electronics department with interactive display, adding more checkout lines, and expanding the baby department and hardware section. The building received new signage, flooring and paint design, as well.

The store also began offering online grocery ordering on Oct. 19.

The improvements here are part of an $11 billion plan by Walmart to remodel 500 stores and open 20 new stores across the US, The Observer reported. Click here to read the full article.
