Walmart and Sam’s Club help raise funds for local hospitalized kids

This summer, Walmart and Sam’s Club stores throughout inland Northern California will once again join forces to raise money for UC Davis Children’s Hospital. Beginning Monday, June 13, associates will encourage customers to help kids by donating to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) at UC Davis.

Donations can be made at the register, self-checkout or online. A QR code will be available for shoppers to scan and donate through their phones. Plus, customers can “Round Up” at both stores. The “Round Up” portion of the campaign offers customers a simple and easy way to give by rounding up purchases to the nearest dollar and donating the difference. andthe Walmart App will also have “Round Up” options.

Associates raised more than $481,000 in 2021, bringing Walmart and Sam’s Club’s total donation to CMN at UC Davis to more than $9 million.
