Walmart and Sam’s Club raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospital

Wednesday, June 24, 2020


Walmart and Sam's Club associates are changing kid's health by raising money for their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, based out of Gundersen Health System in La Crosse.

Beginning Monday, June 22, associates will fundraise for four weeks during a nationwide campaign that has raised more than $1 billion for CMN Hospitals.

Associates will ask guests to round up their change to the nearest dollar at Walmart locations or donate at Sam's Club stores. Self-check out registers will have a screen giving guests the option to donate.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic reached home, many families in the Tri-state Region have experienced financial hardships at a time when many fundraisers and campaigns to raise money for CMN Hospitals have been cancelled due to safety precautions.

"It is incredible that the associates aren't just asking customers to donate. They're also donating to CMN Hospitals because they see how it benefits their community," said Nicole Loeffelholz, CMN Hospitals specialist. "They understand that guests and staff on their team have been helped by CMN Hospitals."


Walmart and Sam's Club have supported Children's Miracle Network Hospitals for 32 years. Funds raised impact each of the 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, which treat 10 million kids annually across the country. Hospitals utilize the funds based on what they need most — including lifesaving equipment and research, top therapy programs, charitable care and more.

CMN Hospitals at Gundersen Health System cares for all children with any medical problem regardless of where they receive their care and regardless of the family's ability to pay. 100% of the donations we receive are used to help local families. Our goals are to:

  • Provide support to families with children who have a variety of healthcare needs
  • Fund medical equipment and programs to benefit children
  • Broaden awareness about specialty care available for children at Gundersen Health System
  • Serve families living in the Tri-state Region
