Walmart customers raise $189K for Children’s HospitalTweet
The MUSC Children’s Hospital, a member of the Children’s Miracle Network, received nearly $190,000 from area Walmart customers.
Walmart, the largest CMN corporate sponsor, holds a six-week campaign each year to raise money for children’s hospitals. The 13 Walmart stores in the Charleston region held their campaigns May 7 - June 21 and raised $189,065.
Goose Creek Walmart store No. 2928 raised $45,961.90, which put the store in 16th place in the country for CMN fundraising in 2013.
The Goose Creek store and its customers will be thanked during a celebration at 11:15 a.m. on July 12.
“The donations ultimately come from the Walmart customers. We want to make sure the community is aware of how generous they were and how their donations make a difference in the lives of more than 200,000 children that walk through the doors of MUSC every year,” said MUSC Office of Development’s Mimi Dorman.July 10, 2013
