Walmart Launches Pickup Hour in Select Markets for Those Most At-Risk
Walmart is launching a pickup hour for people most at-risk for COVID-19. Each day, the 7:00 to 8:00 a.m. hour at select pickup store locations will be reserved for customers over the age of 60, first responders, customers with disabilities, and anyone designated high-risk.
The census seeks to include every individual living in the United States, but many people with disabilities are historically left out of the count—harmfully impacting funding, services, and supports. The Arc has created free resources to support people with disabilities and beyond in understanding what the census is, why it’s important for people with disabilities, and how to complete it. Make sure you and your community are ready to be counted. Los recursos también son disponibles en español!
The Arc fights every day to protect civil rights and access to vital programs, such as Medicaid, for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). But we can’t do it alone! We need the help of people with I/DD, their families, and allies of the cause.
