Walmart and Sam’s Club Step Up to #HelpKidsLiveBetter at Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands

Braden Green, 2020 Champion for Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands was featured on campaign signs in stores and clubs across the Midlands. Family and friends were excited to share photos when they saw Braden!

Despite a challenging year, local Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers, and members joined forces to change kids’ health and change the future during the annual #HelpKidsLiveBetter campaign for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Local stores and clubs raised nearly $150,000 for Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands, an increase of 73 percent more than the 2019 register campaign. The effort was part of a national campaign that raised more than $39 million for children’s hospitals across the country. To date, total fundraising from Walmart and Sam’s Club for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is more than $1 billion.

Donations were collected beginning June 22 as Walmart and Sam’s Club associates at 24 locations in the Midlands held various in-store fundraising activities and asked customers and members at the register to help kids live better. The campaign was extended through July 31 to continue accepting roundup donations at the register, on and on the Walmart app.

Children’s hospitals are on the frontline of the COVID-19 crisis, while also continuing to provide the high-quality, life-saving care that children need every day. Money raised at Walmart and Sam’s Club helps transform how we meet the most urgent needs, saving more lives and protecting our collective future. All funds raised at Midlands Walmart and Sam’s Club locations directly benefit the kids treated at Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands.

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 #HelpKidsLiveBetter campaign supports Walmart’s goal of giving back to local communities.

Walmart associate, Natasha Jones made, designed and sold more than 300 masks to Walmart associates across the US to raise funds for our local kids.
