Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores raise money for Boston Children’s Hospital

Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to raise money for Boston Children’s Hospital during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals campaign.

Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers, and members have raised near $17 Million for Boston Children’s Hospital since 1992. 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 nonprofit. Money is raised primarily through a register campaign where customers and members contribute $1 or more when they checkout. Associates also fund-raise in other ways including bake sales, in-store contests, and events. The 2019 campaign raised $564,186 for Boston Children’s Hospital.
This year’s register campaign runs until July 19, 2020. Customers and members can conveniently donate their change, $1 or more at the register or self check-out area at any Eastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire Walmart or Sam’s Club stores.
Money raised at Walmart and Sam’s Club stores goes directly to benefit the sick and injured kids treated at Boston Children’s Hospital. Funds are used to pay for equipment, research, supplies, charitable care, and a variety of other needs the hospital has.
Walmart and Sam’s Club joined the CMN Hospitals fundraising family in 1987 with Sam Walton himself being personally involved in the beginning of the relationship between the organizations. The fundraising campaigns supports Walmart’s goal of giving back to local communities.
Customers and members can help spread the word about the campaign via social media using the hashtag #HelpKidsLiveBeter.
