May is for Miracles
Every minute, 62 kids enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment. This May, you can be part of making miracles happen for your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital—Nationwide Children’s by visiting and donating at any of these retail locations throughout Central Ohio in the month of May.
Walmart and Sam’s Club will once again be asking for donations and selling miracle balloons to support Nationwide Children’s, in addition to their in-store bake sales, cook-outs, raffles and other community events to support local kids. Other retailers making miracles happen here in Central Ohio during the month of May areSpeedway, donating a portion of every Speedy Freeze sold during May, Chico’s andWhite House Black Market, donating a portion of their special Mother’s Day necklaces and charm bracelets, and Costco with the sale of miracle balloons in their stores.
Together, we are making miracles happen here in Central Ohio, $1 at a time. To find out more about Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals or any of our May campaigns, please contact Sophia Fifner at (614) 355-5422.
