Walmart and Sam’s Clubs
We want to thank our partners at Walmart and Sam’s Clubs across greater Austin for the incredible 2020 Children’s Miracle Network campaign that took place over June and July. We saw store associates and shoppers show up in a BIG way for the kids raising over $200,000 to support Dell Children’s HERE Campaign. This is a 20% increase over last year’s campaign and we are filled with gratitude that even during these changing times, we can count on our community to be with us no matter what. Congratulations and thank you to everyone who helped to make this success possible!
In addition to Panda Express being a year round fundraising partner to Dell Children’s, AND donating 600 meals to frontline caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic – we want to express our sincere thanks for their incredible donation of nearly 20,000 facemasks.
