Nov. 29--Through the Surveyors Helping Surveyors 2009 program, 150 Wal-Mart giftcards will be mailed out this week to individuals in the surveying profession who have lost their job due to the economy. The original goal of the program was 100 gift cards; however, in early November, The Matthews Co. Inc. reported that an additional $5,000 was raised to purchase 50 more gift cards.
