Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores to raise money for Le Bonheur
Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to raise money for Le Bonheur 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 over $9 million dollars for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital since 1989. 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 when they checkout. Associates also fundraise in other ways including bake sales, in-store contests and events. The 2016 campaign raised more than $500,000 for Le Bonheur.
This year’s register campaign runs from September 21 through October 29. Customers and members can conveniently donate $1 or more when they check out at any local Walmart or Sam’s Club stores.
Money raised at West Tennessee, North Mississippi or Eastern Arkansas Walmart and Sam’s Club stores goes directly to benefit the sick and injured kids treated at Le Bonheur Children’s. Funds are used to pay for equipment, research, supplies, charitable care and a variety of other hospital needs.
