Walmart & Sam’s Club Are Making Miracles Happen

Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are halfway through the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) campaign.

This year’s register campaign runs thought October 29. Customers and members can conveniently donate $1 or more when they check out at any Walmart or Sam’s Club location in San Angelo and Brady. Associates also fundraise in other ways including bake sales, in-store contests and events.

In 2016, the six-week Walmart and Sam’s Club campaign raised more than $52,000 for Children’s Miracle Network at Shannon Medical Center. 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. Like all CMN fundraisers, 100 percent of funds go directly to Shannon Medical Center.

CMN funds are used each year to purchase new equipment and provide training to benefit any department at Shannon that could possibly treat a pediatric patient. CMN’s goal is to provide these services locally so that area children may stay in San Angelo at home, or close to home, for their treatments.
