Celebrating 35 Years of Partnership with Walmart and Sam’s Club

The 2022 Walmart and Sam’s Club campaign benefitting East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, a proud member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, begins today, June 13, and will run through July 10th. This four-week campaign will help provide the critical funds necessary to meet our most urgent needs.

For 35 years, Walmart and Sam’s Club associates across the country have rallied behind the CMN Hospitals campaign to ensure kids and families in their communities are supported during the most trying moments in their lives. When the partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals was formed, Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart, said “the associates will amaze you,” and those words could not have been more true. Year in and year out, the associates amaze us with their passion for our cause, their creativity, kindness, and the simple act of making the ask at the register. Walmart and Sam’s Club associates make a positive impact on kids’ health here in our community and in communities across North America.

Since 1988, Walmart and Sam’s Club associates and guest in our area have raise over $8.5 million dollars for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.

Up to 50% of families who end up at a children’s hospital, did not expect it when waking up that morning. The funds raised through partners like Walmart and Sam’s Club, ensure kids can get the care they need when they need it, no matter life’s circumstances. Whether you’re shopping in a store or club or online, you have the chance to change kids’ health to change the future. Every dollar raised goes to support local kids and families, creating the kind of ripple effects that will positively impact our community and our world for years to come
