For 35 years, Walmart and Sam’s Club have partnered with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to change kids’ health to change the future. Associates in stores and clubs across the country have rallied behind the CMN Hospitals campaign year in and year out, raising more than $1 billion over the lifetime of the partnership for children’s hospitals across North America, with more than $43 million going to help Arkansas Children’s since 1987.
On June 13, Walmart and Sam’s Club associates will kick off this year’s fundraising campaign, benefitting Arkansas Children’s, a proud member of CMN Hospitals, giving customers and members alike many options to donate at the register or online.
“A 35-year partnership is quite rare and special,” said Teri Nestel, President and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “We’re thrilled to be celebrating this significant milestone with Walmart and Sam’s Club, and even more importantly the shared values that bring us together; engaging communities to transform children’s healthcare and ensure healthy tomorrows.”
Changing kids’ health through children’s hospitals isn’t just about treating illness and trauma – it’s about making sure the child and their family have everything they need to feel stable, comfortable and prepared for what comes next.
“The partnership with Walmart and Sam’s club is essential to the work we do at Arkansas Children’s,” said Enid Olvey, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Arkansas Children’s Foundation. “Because of their generous and continued support, we are able to continue pushing our mission forward of making children better today and healthier tomorrow.”
There are many ways to donate to your local member of CMN Hospitals through the Walmart and Sam’s Club campaign. Customers and members in Arkansas can donate any dollar amount at the register, or simply round up their purchase to the next dollar and donate the change in-store or while shopping online.
