This Miracle Story brought to you by ABC10, Walmart and Sam’s Club
Walmart and Sam’s Club share a basic belief – that every child deserves the chance to live better. That’s why they have supported Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals for 30 years – raising nearly a billion dollars for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the process. In 1987, the man affectionately known to the CMN Hospitals team as “Mr. Sam,” Sam Walton, committed his company and its resources to raising money for children’s hospitals with the promise that “the associates will amaze you.”
Walmart associates play a key role in supporting their local children’s hospitals. In addition to the countless hours volunteered at CMN Hospitals, Walmart and Sam’s Club associates across the US and Canada raised more than $63 million dollars in 2016 through fundraisers and register donations, their associates continue to amaze.
And they couldn’t do it with the generosity of the millions of customers who shop in their stores and clubs every week. Together, Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers and members are ensuring that millions of children in communities across North America continue to receive the world-class treatment they need to live better.
