Local Walmart and Sam's Club stores to raise money for Samaritan Medical Center

Watertown, NY – Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to raise money for Samaritan Medical Center during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) campaign. 

Walmart and Sam’s Club associates customers and members have raised $1,057,803 for Samaritan Medical Center since 1990. 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. 

Money is raised primarily through a register campaign where customers and members contribute $1 or more when they checkout. Associates also fundraise in other ways including bake sales, in-store contests and events. 

The 2016 campaign raised $104,189 for Samaritan Medical Center. 

 

This year’s register campaign runs from Aug. 28 to Oct. 1. Customers and members can conveniently donate $1 or more when they check out at any Walmart or Sam’s Club store in the tri-county area. 

Money raised at Walmart and Sam’s Club stores in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties goes directly to benefit the sick and injured kids treated at Samaritan Medical Center. 

Walmart and Sam’s Club joined the CMN Hospitals fundraising family in 1987 with Sam Walton himself being personally involved in the beginning of the relationship between the organizations. The fundraising campaigns supports Walmart’s goal of giving back to local communities. 

 

Customers and members can help spread the word about the campaign via social media using the hashtag #HelpKidsLiveBetter.
