USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals have announced that area Walmart and Sam’s Club stores raised more than $100,000 for the hospital during a recent six-week campaign. The total support of $107,873.43 is a 39 percent increase over last year’s campaign, and Walmart and Sam's Clubs will continue their fundraising efforts for Children’s & Women’s throughout the remainder of the year.
“Our local Walmarts and Sam’s Clubs have a long tradition of enthusiastic and generous support for us,” said hospital administrator Owen Bailey. “We never dreamed that, in the midst of a difficult economy, our Walmart and Sam’s Club friends could exceed last year’s giving. We couldn’t help so many children without the support of our friends at Walmart and Sam’s Club.” Eighteen Walmart and two Sam’s Club stores in Mobile, Baldwin, Clarke, Monroe and George counties participated in the campaign.
