Beginning today, Love’s Travel Stops and its staff and customers will work to support 113 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals around the country. To support the campaign, customers can donate at every Love’s Travel Stop, Country Store, Truck Care, Love’s-owned hotel and participating Speedco locations through Sept. 30.
To donate, customers can purchase a paper balloon for $1, $5, $10 or $20 or Round Up the Change to the nearest dollar at the register. Additionally, stores will hold raffles, fundraisers and sell CMN Hospitals merchandise like teddy bears and golf towels.
Love’s will show additional support for CMN Hospitals on Sept. 29 for National Coffee Day. Customers can purchase any sized coffee for $1 with all proceeds going to CMN Hospitals.
The Children’s Miracle Network got its start thanks to Dukes of Hazzard starJohn Schneider and singer Marie Osmond.
Listen our podcast interview with Schneider and his comments about starting the Children’s Miracle Network.
Love’s partnership with CMN Hospitals began in 1999. Love’s has raised over $35 million for children since then.
“Love’s is honored to continue its partnership with CMN Hospitals to help kids who need medical treatment in the communities where our team members work and live across the country,” said Jenny Love Meyer, chief culture officer and executive vice president of Love’s. “As times continue to be difficult for many people, these funds will ease the burden for caregivers and help kids improve their health.”
CMN Hospitals raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments annually to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund hospitals in each community. Of the 170 CMN Hospitals in the U.S., 113 benefit from Love’s annual campaign.
