Love’s Travel Stops and its customers raised more than $2.8 million through its annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals campaign.
The official campaign took place from Aug. 26 – Sept. 30, when customers could participate in store fundraisers, purchase balloons or CMN Hospitals merchandise and Round up the Change at registers. Customers can continue to make a difference by Rounding up the Change through the end of the year.
“Once again, our customers and employees stepped up in a huge way with this year’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals campaign,” said Jenny Love Meyer, chief culture officer and executive vice president for Love’s. “Donating to this organization is one of our favorite events each year, because we get to help children and their caregivers across the country.”
Since 1999, the company has raised over $35 million for sick and injured children who live in the states where Love’s stores are located. Of the 170 CMN Hospitals throughout North America, 113 benefit from Love’s annual campaign. CMN Hospitals provide 32 million treatments annually to kids across the U.S. and Canada.
“The generosity of Love’s employees, customers and beyond is vital to help support the needs of our local children’s hospitals,” said Teri Nestel, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “The pandemic has created many complex challenges for hospitals and health systems alike, causing the demands placed on these caregivers to be greater than ever."
