Every year, tens of thousands of teenagers struggle with thoughts of helplessness, isolation, depression, and suicide. Sadly, the parents of these teens are the last to learn this, and sometimes after it’s too late to take action. A Brighter Day was founded to help spread awareness about how to recognize and find help for depression, and to build community through social events. This month, A Brighter Day was presented with $1000 by Walmart coach Luis Garza and Walmart Community Coordinator, Robert Romo. Walmart’s local community grants are awarded through an open application process and provide funding directly from Walmart and Sam’s Club facilities to local organizations in the United States.
