Walmart & Sam’s Club to Help Kids Live Better

Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to raise money for Shannon Medical Center during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) campaign.

This year’s register campaign runs from August 27 to September 30. 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 2017, the six-week Walmart and Sam’s Club campaign raised more than $62,000 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.

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.
