WHAT:
For 26 years, local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores have raised funds for northern Nevada’s only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Renown Children’s Hospital. In that time, these stores and their generous customers have donated more than $1.4 million. Join Renown Children’s Hospital as we thank Walmart and Sam’s Club for their ongoing generosity.
 
WHEN:
Thursday, August 16, 9 a.m.
 
WHERE:
Tahoe Tower Lobby
Renown Regional Medical Center
1155 Mill Street
Reno, NV 89502
 
WHY:
Walmart and Sam’s Club are key supporters of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals nationwide. Here in northern Nevada, previous donations have funded the hiring of two Child Life Specialists, a remote-monitoring system in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, flat-screen TVs in patient rooms, video games and gaming systems, and support of the Healing Arts program. In 2017, $124,313 in donations funded renovations of the family lounge for Renown Children’s Hospital’s pediatric specialty center.
 
From August 27 to September 30, Walmart and Sam’s Club stores throughout northern Nevada will once again be campaigning for Renown Children’s Hospital – hoping to raise $130,000. Customers can help support this great cause by donating at the register. Fourteen stores across Reno, Sparks, Fernley, Fallon, Gardnerville, Susanville, Winnemucca and Carson City are taking part.
 
As the only dedicated children’s hospital in northern Nevada, Renown Children’s Hospital cares for more than 26,000 children each year. These donations are key to providing care to young patients right here in our community.
