Our customers have told us how important the environment is to them and we are committed to do what we can to help provide this much needed service." said Todd McKee, store manager of the Salina Wal-Mart. In 1990, Wal-Mart began funding community environmental efforts in Wal-Mart communities. Last year, more than $1 million was given to community recycling and environmental programs. Wal-Mart's ongoing environmental efforts include: working with their vendor partners on improving the manufacturing of products and producing new, environmentally improved products; providing information to their associates and customers with updates, environmental facts and product improvements; to continue to support and promote participation in local community activities concerning the environment; and, to continue to look for ways to improve the "way of doing business" with respect to the environment. 825-9126 Kansas Care Offers Free Blood Pressure Clinics Each Month At The Following Locations: 1st Tuesday of the month Cental MalL 10 am- 2pm 1st Thursday of the month Dillons Super Store, Planet Ave., 4:30 pm -6:30 pm 2nd Thursday of the month Dillons Sunset Haza, 4$) pm - &30 pm 1st Saturday of the month "forget 2939 Market Place, 1230pm -2:30pm 2nd Saturday of the month Fast Bank Kansas, 107 & Center, Assaria, 8:30 am -10 am 3rd of each month Fust Bank Kansas, 235 S.
