Corner Store is giving back to the communities it serves through a campaign to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
During the 22nd Miracle Balloon campaign, Corner Store, its customers and its team members are helping give back to local kids being treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals). The campaign runs from April 1- 30.
Corner Store locations in Colorado, Texas, Arizona, California, New Mexico, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas will raise funds for 30 member Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals during the 30-day campaign.
Throughout the campaign, Corner Store customers will be able to purchase a $1 or $5 Miracle Balloon, buy a glow bracelet or donate change to support sick and injured kids in the community.
“We’re grateful for Corner Store’s long-term support and the strong relationships that exist between individual locations and our member hospitals,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “It’s clear that Corner Store cares about the communities it serves by the way its leadership and team members get behind this campaign that impacts so many.”
Collected funds will benefit children like Ryleigh who was born weighing only one pound, 11 ounces and spent 88 days in the neonatal intensive care unit at her CMN Hospital. Local donations funded research and technology that helped her survive a bacterial infection and surgery to repair a heart condition. Now eight years old, Ryleigh is energetic, imaginative and inspires others with her joyful spirit.
“For over two decades, our team members and loyal customers have opened their hearts and wallets for children treated at local CMN Hospitals,” said Kim Lubel, president and CEO of CST Brands Inc., which owns and operates Corner Store locations. “Leading the CMN Hospitals campaign for our communities embodies our Corner Store core value of servant leadership and gives us a greater sense of purpose. Experiencing the generosity of our great Corner Store customers brings joy to all of us.”
Corner Store has raised more than $23 million for pediatric patients since partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 1995. Like all Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraisers, donations made during the Corner Store campaign will stay local to benefit kids in the community.
