Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Participating Walgreen stores are partnering with T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital at Erlanger by selling the Season of Miracles ornament and raising money for children who receive medical care at the hospital.  

“We are so pleased Walgreens is working with us to advance the healing mission of Children’s Hospital Foundation,” said Julie Taylor, Erlanger Foundations chief development officer. “Our goal is to create a kid-friendly atmosphere for children and their families by renovating our patient rooms, providing activities for the children during their stay and to purchase equipment dedicated to the medical care of children.” 

By purchasing the hospital’s official ornament, customers will be helping to make miracles happen for even the littlest patients at Erlanger, officials said.
