Area Walmart, Sam’s stores kick off fundraising

Campaign to benefit Children’s Miracle Network hospitals

Posted

All Denver Walmart stores and Sam’s Clubs have kicked off their Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising campaign to help treat local children who are sick or injured.

All money raised during the Denver campaign directly benefits Children’s Hospital Colorado to fund critical treatments, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitable care.

The Walmart and Sam’s Club campaign runs through July 7.

“Our associates take so much pride in raising money for this cause. Each year we sincerely enjoy assisting with this effort,” Lakewood store manager William Roberts said in a news release.

To date, Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, members and customers in Denver have raised $15.1 million for Children’s Hospital Colorado, most of it one dollar at a time. On a national level, Walmart and Sam’s Club have raised more than $1 billion for CMN Hospitals, the largest cash amount ever raised by one company for a nonprofit in North America, according to the news release.

The need is staggering — 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network hospital for treatment every minute, the release said.

To participate, shoppers can donate $1 or more at the checkout lane or self-checkout of any Colorado Walmart store or Sam’s Club and spread the word about the campaign via social media with the hashtag #HelpKidsLiveBetter.
