Walmart and Sam’s Club have collectively raised $1.4 million for Arkansas Children’s through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, concluding its six-week annual campaign, the pediatric care provider announced.
“We are thrilled by this news,” Enid Olvey, president of Arkansas Children’s Foundation, said in a news release. “Donations like these continue to support Arkansas Children’s most urgent needs.”
Donations were received at cash registers, online and through fundraising efforts held at individual stores across the United States and Canada.
The campaign raised more than $40 million for CMN Hospitals, earning 20% more than last year’s campaign.
Since 1987, Walmart and Sam’s Club have raised more than $1 billion for CMN Hospitals, with $45 million being raised for Arkansas Children’s.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a nonprofit that raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals that support the health of 10 million kids each year across the U.S. and Canada.
Funds raised through Arkansas Children’s Miracle Network help provide families in unique situations with care needed.
This donation follows the announcement that $5.9 million was raised in 2022 through over 40 members of CMN Hospitals for Arkansas Children’s Hospital and Arkansas Children’s Northwest.
