Wal-Mart and Sam's Club fundraiser supports Children's Hospital

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 more than 25 years, raising more than $650 million 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.”

From May 1 through June 11, Walmart and Sam’s Club locations in Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky will be holding a six-week fundraising campaign to support the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

At checkout, customers will be asked to make a donation. More than $647,000 was raised by these locations during the campaign in 2013.
