The 2020 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals campaign with Austin area Costco locations was a huge success in the month of September raising tens of thousands of dollars for the kids at Dell Children’s. Members and community businesses gave with so much generosity and Costco associates kept the momentum going all month long. Thank you to Costco for being on the front lines of caring for our community!
We would like to thank Kendra Scott for honoring Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September with an incredible 2020 Children’s Miracle Network campaign. Austin-area Kendra Scott stores asked their shoppers to round-up their purchases for local kids.
In addition, the South Congress flagship store went above and beyond to make a difference for Dell Children’s. The store hosted a two-day giveback event, donating 20% of purchases to the HERE Campaign, and supported all month long by selling CMN cookies and lemonade in their Sips & Sweets Cafe.
