Love’s Travel Stops and its customers raised more than $2.45 million through its annual campaign to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Since 1999, the company has raised over $33 million for sick and injured children who live in the communities where Love’s stores are located, according to a statement from the company.
While the official campaign took place from Aug. 31 – Oct. 3, the campaign began early this year when Love’s asked customers to Round Up the Change beginning July 14. More than $820,000 was raised through Round Up the Change efforts. Beginning Aug. 31, customers could continue Rounding Up the Change, or they could donate any amount at a register. Customers also donated through raffles.
“We are so thankful to our employees and customers who found ways to donate safely and creatively this year,” said Jenny Love Meyer, executive vice president and chief culture officer for Love’s. “This has been an extraordinary year and our team members and customers have proved that despite COVID, their support of sick and injured children and CMN Hospitals is unwavering.”
Of the 170 CMN Hospitals throughout North America, 111 benefit from Love’s annual campaign.
