Local Walmart, Neighborhood Market And Sam’s Club Raising Funds For Children’s Hospital Through Sept. 30

Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Local Walmart, Neighborhood Market and Sam’s Club locations are once again joining forces to raise money for the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) campaign. 
 
Walmart, Neighborhood Market and Sam’s Club associates will ask customers to donate $1 or more each time they check out at a register. Associates also fundraise in other ways including bake sales, in-store contests and events.

One such event will take place on Thursday at the Walmart Supercenter in Dalton.

They are hosting a carnival and football training event with a former NFL player. The free event from 4-8 p.m. features special guest Buddy Curry, former Atlanta Falcons Linebacker. 
 
“All the funds raised at the Chattanooga area locations will stay local to benefit the Believe Campaign to build the new Children’s Hospital at Erlanger,” said Beth Agee, CMN Hospitals director for the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.  “Walmart, Neighborhood Market and Sam’s Club continue to be the largest CMN Hospitals fundraising partner in our area. Our dedicated Walmart teams raised over $240,000 last year and we look forward to working with them to once again raise money to benefit the children of the Chattanooga region.” 
 
Walmart, Neighborhood Market and Sam’s Club associates, customers and members have raised over $4.1 million for the Children’s Hospital at Erlanger since 1987. 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. 
 
This year’s register campaign runs through Sept. 30. Customers and members can donate $1 or more when they check out at any Chattanooga area Walmart or Sam’s Club location.
 
Money raised at Chattanooga area Walmart and Sam’s Club locations goes directly to benefit the sick and injured kids treated at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.
