Walmart Surprised Eddie With $1K After Bad Situation + $10K To Foster Kids

Eddie and his wife have two 'new' additions to their family in recent months. They announced back in April of this year that they were eligible foster parents and shortly after they were welcoming two kids into their home.

Things have been going as well as possible given all of the new circumstances and the two kids have been adapting great with Eddie, his wife, and their two kids. One of the kids is still a baby and needs baby formula. They were given baby formula by the foster organization, but it turned out to be the wrong formula. So Eddie went to Walmart to replace the formula with the right kind, but when he went to customer service they told him he couldn't steal. He felt wronged after being told he was stealing, despite just trying to help their foster baby.

Fast forward to now (July 2) Melody from Walmart called into The Bobby Bones Show to not only apologize to Eddie for the incident, but also offer a $1,000 gift card to go towards anything they want for his family. Not only that, Melody shared that Walmart will be donating $10,000 to the foster organization of Eddie's choice. She said that Walmart is actively working to make their customer service the best it could possibly be, and Eddie talking about his situation on the show just brought to light something they wanted to jump in and fix.

Eddie says things have been difficult in the past few days and to have this happen is just "unexplainable."
