UPDATE: Walmart’s Self-Checkout Employee Christmas Party Has Turned Into A Community Event
I discovered a local New Jersey page recently created by Andrew (Drew) Delgado, for the Lacey Walmart Self Checkout Employees Christmas Party, taking place on December 15, 2023 at 8pm.
Drew detailed it:” Celebrating another successful year of picking, paying, and bagging your own groceries while actual employees just stand around and check receipts.”
Since creating this event and seeing thousands of people responding to the R.S.V.P as wanting to attend, Andrew had an incredibly productive idea.
He wrote: “While this started as a joke, it has me thinking. What if…I was to organize a big toy drive where we have a Santa Claus and then we all purchase toys from the store, pile them outside and then donate them to whatever children happen to come to the store?”
“I genuinely believe that something good can come from this.”
Andrew actually called Walmart Corporate. While they thought it was funny, they were not interested in having an actual event at the Lanoka Harbor store. Andrew was told that the local police departments are going to be on standby on December 15th so please do not show up there to cause any kind of ruckus.
Andrew kept the wheels turning, and just a few days ago he let us know that the Lacey Elks, some of my favorite people on the planet, have come to the rescue.
There will be an official event happening at the Lacey Elks Lodge on Beach Blvd in Forked River. We are working with them to set up something nice for families in need.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS OFFICIAL!! THANK YOU, LACEY ELKS LODGE, #2518. FRIDAY DECEMBER 15,2023. 6:30 to 9:30pm
Please make sure you tell everyone you know. This needs to become a BIG Deal!!
I’m promoting this on the WRAT website and talking about it on the air.
Will Drew Delgado and the Lacey Elks be wearing their Christmas super hero capes to this event? We should all show up and find out.
