Local Walmart and Sam’s Club Stores Raise Money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

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

Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers and members have raised over $25 Million for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta since 1988. Last year, Walmart and Sam’s Club passed the $1 billion fundraising mark for CMN Hospitals in the US and Canda, 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 fundraise in other ways including bake sales, in-store contests, and events such as a company-wide kickball fundraising event!

The 2018 campaign raised over $860,000 for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and over $1 Million by the end of the year!

This year’s register campaign runs until July 7th! Customers and members can conveniently donate $1 or more when they check out at any Atlanta-area Walmart or Sam’s Club stores.

Money raised at Atlanta-area Walmart and Sam’s Club stores goes directly to benefit the sick and injured kids treated at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. 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 #HelpKidsLiveBetter.
