During its annual six-week campaign, Walmart and Sam’s Club raised $1.4 million for Arkansas Children’s through Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals.

“We are thrilled by this news,” said Enid Olvey, president of Arkansas Children’s Foundation.

“Donations like this continue to support Arkansas Children’s most urgent needs. We are grateful to see the collective efforts from shoppers adding up to impactful support,” Olvey added.

From June 12-July 14, 2023 shoppers donated at registers, online and through creative fundraising efforts held at individual stores across the U.S. and Canada.

The overall campaign raised more than $40 million – 22% more than last year’s campaign.

Since 1987, Walmart and Sam’s Club have raised more than $1 billion for CMN Hospitals, including more than $45 million for Arkansas Children’s.
