Walmart, Sam's Club offer opportunity to support children's charity


SALT LAKE CITY — Walmart and Sam's Club is offering customers and members the opportunity support the Children's Miracle Network. Now through June 15, Walmart customers and Sam's Club members can make a donation of any amount at the retailers' registers to support the Children's Miracle Network Hospital in their community.

For 25 years, Walmart and Sam's Club have raised funds for 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across North America. To-date, Walmart and Sam's Club associates have collected $600 million, with most donations coming in $1 at a time. Donations are given to the CMN Hospital in the community in which they're donated and used however the hospital needs them most. Typically, funds support uncompensated care, life-saving equipment, research and training.

"Our hospitals are grateful to the generous Walmart and Sam's Club associates, customers and members. It's inspiring to see so many people working together to literally save the lives of kids in their own communities," said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. "We see how crucial the funds collected by Walmart and Sam's Club are to our hospitals. The fact these $1-at-a-time donations have added up to $600 million is just amazing --and a great example of teamwork."
