Local Walmart is tops raising money for Riley

The Walmart store in Shelbyville has raised so much money for the Riley Hospital for Children, it got a new banner color to mark the occasion.

“We were just awarded a platinum banner for $51,030 (raised) last year,” said staff member Dawn Gilles.

That figure made the local store the top Walmart in Indiana and sixth in the nation for raising money to help sick children and their families, she said.
