Local Walmart, Sam’s Club stores raise money for Children’s Health
September 01, 2017
Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to raise money for Children’s Health during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals campaign.
Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers and members have raised more than $5.1 million for Children’s Health since the program began. On a national level, Walmart and Sam’s Club are closing in on the $1 billion fundraising mark for CMN Hospitals in the U.S. and Canada.
Money is raised primarily through a register campaign where customers and members contribute $1 or more at checkout. Associates also fundraise in other ways, including bake sales, in-store contests and events.
This year’s register campaign runs from Sept. 21 through Oct. 29. Customers and members can conveniently donate $1 or more when they check out at any Walmart or Sam’s Club store. Money raised at Dallas-area locations goes directly to benefit the sick and injured kids treated at Children’s Health.
Customers and members can help spread the word about the campaign via social media using the hashtag #HelpKidsLiveBetter.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and health care services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. Since 1983 CMN Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through the charity's Miracle Balloon icon. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit's mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. Find out why children's hospitals need community support, identify your member hospital and learn how you can Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are, at CMNHospitals.org and facebook.com/CMNHospitals.
