CMN campaign

Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are joining forces to raise money for Medical Center Health System during the annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals campaign.

In the Permian Basin, Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers and members have raised more than $1,465,341.50 for Medical Center Health System since 1987.

Money is raised primarily through a register campaign where customers and members contribute $1 or more when they check out. 

This year’s register campaign runs from June 10 to July 7. 

Customers and members can conveniently donate $1 or more when they check out at any Permian Basin Walmart or Sam’s Club store.

Money raised at the Permian Basin Walmart and Sam’s Club stores goes directly to benefit the sick and injured kids treated at MCHS. Funds are used to pay for equipment, research, supplies, charitable care and a variety of other needs the hospital has.
