Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores to raise money for Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children

Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to raise money for Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) campaign.

Walmart and Sam’s Club associates customers and members have raised more than $12 million for CMN Hospitals in Central Florida since 1987. On a national level, Walmart and Sam’s Club have raised more than $1 billion for CMN Hospitals; the largest cash amount ever raised by one company for a nonprofit in North America.

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 special events. From dressing up in costumes, to hosting golf tournaments, casino nights, BBQs, car washes and even a petting zoo, associates across Central Florida are putting the FUN in FUNdraising for the kids!

In 2018, Walmart & Sam’s Club associates and customers helped raised nearly $642,000 for Orlando Health Arnold Palmer.

This year’s register campaign runs until July 7. Customers and members can conveniently donate any amount when they check out at any Walmart or Sam’s Club store in Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Brevard, Volusia or Flagler counties.

Money raised directly benefits the sick and injured kids treated at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer. Funds are used for the hospital’s greatest area of need, which can include the purchase of lifesaving equipment, as well as funding for vital programs and activities for patients and families.

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.
