FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Wal-Mart Stores has agreed
to provide 400 free bicycles, cash donations to charity and other free
products to settle a dispute with a non-profit charity founded by Andre
Johnson of the Houston Texans to help needy, inner-city children. According
to Hillel Presser, a prominent Fort Lauderdale attorney who negotiated
the settlement, problems arose after Johnson paid nearly $26,000 retail
for hundreds of children's bicycles to be given away during an annual
Foundation sponsored event featuring food, music, and festivities for
under-privileged children in Miami Gardens, Florida.
The bicycle purchase was to include free ice and water for the children.
Wal-Mart was unable to supply all the various sizes of bicycles ordered
and a Wal-Mart employee then revoked the ice and water offer without notice,
citing the smaller number of delivered bicycles, even though Wal-Mart
was responsible for the shortage.
Said attorney Presser: "This settlement is a win-win for the needy
children, for my client, Andre Johnson, and for Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart values
its reputation for supporting local charities and events and Andre is
able to help more deserving children get bicycles." In addition to
the 400, free bicycles and cash, Wal-Mart will supply free ice, water,
and food to the next event for 1500 children.
