NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP)- The North Platte Walmart City transportation office selected Buffalo Elementary School to receive a 1000 dollar donation as part of Walmart's support of local communities.

Truck drivers for Walmart drove extra carefully for a week. For every accident free mile they drove during that week, Walmart made a financial contribution to local schools. Walmart is donating one cent for each accident-free mile. Walmart Transportation offices nationwide contributed more than 100 thousand to schools in their communities.

"I think it's great that they thought of us and you know it's one of those things that it trickles down so somewhere along the line someone thought of Buffalo," said Danesa Fleck, the Principle at Buffalo, "and I think it's just a it's a great resource and extra money is always useful because supplies and those kinds of things like that are expensive. So it'll be put to great use I can promise that."
