Local Walmart & Sam’s Clubs are ready to help raise $1 billion!

Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to raise money for Penn State Children’s Hospital during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) campaign.

Walmart and Sam’s Club associates customers and members have raised more than $5.3 million for Penn State Children’s Hospital since 1987 including $300,536 during last year’s campaign. 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.

We hosted a kick-off at the East York Walmart to celebrate 2017 fundraising totals and share information about the 2018 campaign. Miracle Child Corbin whose life was saved by ECMO, a piece of equipment that was purchased by #CMNHershey, shared his story and took “Billion Dollar” photos with associates.

 

During the campaign, money is raised primarily through a register campaign where customers and members contribute $1 or more when they checkout. Associates also fundraise in other ways including bake sales, in-store contests and events. This year’s register campaign runs from Aug. 27 to Sept. 30. Customers and members can conveniently donate $1 or more when they check out at any local Walmart or Sam’s Club location. Customers and members can help spread the word about the campaign via social media using the hashtag #HelpKidsLiveBetter.

Money raised in the Harrisburg, York, Lancaster and Lebanon region supports equipment, research and programs at Penn State Children’s Hospital. View dollars at work and watch our Miracle Kids cheer on our local associates!
