SALT LAKE CITY—Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and 7-Eleven have launched a holiday fundraising campaign at participating 7-Eleven, Speedway and Stripes stores. Now through January 10, customers can round up their purchase at checkout or donate $1 to help support more than 105 member hospitals in communities across the country.
“Following a successful Speedway Miracle Tournament and Celebration Dinner this summer, which raised nearly $3 million, we are excited to expand our support of CMN Hospitals with the launch of a holiday fundraising campaign in 7-Eleven, Speedway and Stripes stores,” said Rankin Gasaway, executive vice president and chief administrative officer for 7-Eleven. “Funds raised through this campaign will help advance pediatric health care by providing critical lifesaving equipment and much needed resources to treat children throughout the communities we serve.”
Along with the option to round up at the register, customers can also donate directly to CMN Hospitals.
“The holiday season is always a special time of year—a time for reflection and giving back,” said Teri Nestel, president and CEO of CMN Hospitals. “Round-up campaigns hosted by our corporate partners, like 7-Eleven, make it easier for consumers to share the holiday spirit this season and support their local CMN Hospital. Their generosity will help ensure kids have access to holistic, best-in-class care to unleash their full potential.”
7-Eleven began its partnership with CMN Hospitals earlier this year to help protect kids’ health and well-being across local communities. Since 1991, Speedway, a part of the 7-Eleven family of brands, has partnered with CMN Hospitals to raise more than $150 million for local children’s hospitals through in-store campaigns, promotions and its annual Speedway Miracle Tournament and Celebration Dinner. In 2021, Speedway’s generous customers, vendor partners and associates raised more than $19 million for the nonprofit organization.
Last week, Maverik—Adventure’s First Stop launched it “Round Up the Change for Feeding America” program, which invites customers to round up their in-store cash and credit transactions to the nearest dollar or more to help fight hunger and benefit the Feeding America network of food banks. Also, QuickChek is donating 25 cents for every “Thanksgiving Everyday” sub sandwich it sells from now through November 27 to the Check-Out Hunger fundraising campaign, benefiting those in need ahead of and during the upcoming holidays.
