Children’s hospitals are on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations. But they can’t do it alone. Since 1987, Walmart and Sam’s Club have partnered with CMN Hospitals to raise more than $1 billion for local children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.

With 62 children entering a CMN Hospital every minute, and 10 million annually, the need for adequate health care is as important now as it has ever been. This year, Walmart and Sam’s Club raised $462,225 for The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio! That is incredible! These funds will stay local and help children heal and get back to being kids.

The top raising store for this campaign in our market was store #554 in Laredo, Texas raising $28,151! Store #554 has been the top fundraising store in South Central Texas since 2011. We’re beyond grateful to have such an incredible group of fundraisers in our corner. Our very own Carmelita Cedillo, philanthropy officer, goes above and beyond every campaign to ensure Walmart associates in Laredo are equipped with everything they may need for a successful campaign. Thank you to Carmelita and every Walmart, Neighborhood Market, and Sam’s Club associate for their hard work to help change kids’ health and change the future.
