Walmart Associates Help CMN Kids, Here’s What YOU Can Do
If there is one thing you know about our radio station, it is that we LOVE Children's Miracle Network. We have a great group that oversee CMN here on the high plains. Another group that holds Children's Miracle Network near and dear to their heart is our local Walmart and Sam's Clubs stores.
In Amarillo, Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers and members have raised more than 2.4 million dollars for CMN of Amarillo since 1984. On a national level, Walmart and Sam’s Club have raised more than $1 billion for CMN Hospitals; the largest cash amount ever raised by one company for a nonprofit in North America.
Money is raised primarily through a register campaign where customers and members contribute $1 or more when they check out. Associates also fund-raise in other ways including bake sales, in-store contests, and events.
In 2018, the Walmart and Sam’s Club in the High Plains Regions raised over $184,000 for CMN of Amarillo. This year’s register campaign runs until July 7.
Customers and members can conveniently donate $1 or more when they check out at any Walmart or Sam’s Club stores in the High Plains Region. Money raised at Walmart and Sam’s Club stores goes directly to benefit the sick and injured kids, life-saving pediatric programs.
Walmart and Sam’s Club joined the CMN Hospitals fundraising family in 1987 with Sam Walton himself being personally involved at the beginning of the relationship between the organizations.
