Love’s Travel Stops' annual fundraising effort to aid the 116 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals throughout the country begins Friday.
To support the campaign, customers can donate at every Love’s Travel Stop, Country Store, Love’s-owned hotel and participating Speedco locations through Sept. 30.
To donate, customers can purchase a paper balloon for $1, $5, or $20, Round Up the Change or donate at the register. This is the first year customers can donate on the credit/debit card pin pad at travel stops and country stores. Additionally, stores will hold raffles, fundraisers and sell CMN Hospitals merchandise to raise money.
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. Coffee purchases must be made through the Love’s Connect app for the deal.
“CMN Hospitals provides amazing care for sick and injured children across the nation. We’re proud to partner with them to positively impact kids’ health,” said Jenny Love Meyer, Love’s chief culture officer and executive vice president. “Our team members and customers are incredible. They come together every year to help kids in their local area.”
Love’s partnership with CMN Hospitals began in 1999 and has raised more than $40 million for children across the country.
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 made at Love’s stay local to fund hospitals in each community.
