SUNOCO LP (STRIPES® STORES AND APLUS) RAISE MORE THAN $1.8 MILLION FOR CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS®
Donations Through In-store Miracle Balloon Fundraising Campaigns Will Provide Vital Funds for Pediatric Programs
SALT LAKE CITY (May 24, 2016) — Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) is proud to announce fundraising totals for Stripes Convenience Stores and APlus Stores exceeding $1.8 million dollars in four short weeks.
Stripes and APlus, owned and operated by Sunoco LP, have partnered with CMN Hospitals since 2000, raising more than $11 million for sick and injured kids.
“Sunoco LP is committed to improving the communities where we live and work, and we are incredibly proud of our customers and team members for raising more than $1.8 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said Cynthia Archer, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Sunoco LP. “We are grateful that we can support children throughout the communities we serve.”
Like all in-store CMN Hospitals fundraisers, 100 percent of funds raised from Sunoco LP campaigns will stay in the community in which they were raised. Those contributions help make miracles happen by funding vital medical care, equipment and therapy programs that save and improve the lives of more than 10 million sick and injured children each year.
“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of Sunoco LP customers and employees for another record-breaking campaign,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. “Each dollar donated helps kids treated at our member children’s hospitals receive the best care available.”
Sunoco LP presented a check to patients at a Children's Miracle Network Hospital from funds raised through the 16th Annual Stripes Stores and APlus in-store CMNH campaign. The funds will be distributed throughout the Sunoco LP operating markets to benefit local CMN hospitals that serve children and youth.
