Tops Friendly Markets has begun its annual campaign for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH). The initiative is officially underway at all participating Tops Friendly Markets locations and will run through Sunday, July 2.
Customers can support the CMNH campaign by purchasing a $1 Children’s Miracle Network “Miracle Balloon,” or round up their change at any participating Tops, where 100% of the proceeds will be donated back to the local women and children’s hospitals in its communities.
A press release stated, “Thanks to the generous support of its shoppers and associates over the 15 years Tops has been involved in supporting the campaign, they have helped to successfully raise over $2.3 million.”
Tops Friendly Markets President John Persons said, “We are very thankful to all the front-line workers that perform miracles every day in the respective hospitals. Now more than ever, they need our support to assist in having the necessary funds available to them to provide the proper care for our most valuable assets – our children."
The participating hospitals include:
The press release noted, “Donations go to local hospitals to fund critical, life-saving treatments and health care services, along with innovative research, vital pediatric medical equipment, child life services that put kids’ and families’ minds at ease during difficult hospital stays, and financial assistance for families who could not otherwise afford these health services.
“When we improve the health of all children and allow them the opportunity to reach their full potential, we also improve our communities for years to come. Together, we can change kids’ health. Together, we can change the future.”
