Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to raise money for UC Davis Children’s Hospital during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN) campaign. From June 22 through July 19 customers can conveniently donate $1 or more when they check out.
Stores across Northern and Central California will encourage shoppers to “round up” at the register, a new feature for this year's campaign. Cashiers will add the donation to the transaction amount. Funds raised stay local and support research, education, clinical care and life-saving equipment to improve and save the lives of sick and injured children in UC Davis Children’s Hospital’s 33-county service area.
Walmart and Sam’s Club joined the CMN Hospitals fundraising family in 1987, underscoring their pledge to give back to local communities. In 2018, Walmart and Sam’s Club passed the $1 billion fundraising mark for CMN Hospitals in the U.S. and Canada, the largest amount raised for a non-profit.
Customers and members can help spread the word about the CMN campaign via social media using the hashtag #HelpKidsLiveBetter.
