Good food + good deeds = a good time in our books. Join us on Thursday, July 19 for our monthly Giveback Thursday event and make a purchase to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of Greater St. Louis!
Each month, we choose a local nonprofit organization and support them by donating 100 percent of our net profits from the day. From 6 a.m. to midnight, profits from every sale, including all kits, products, and gift cards, will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network’s branch in St. Louis.
Funds raised from this Giveback Thursday event will stay in St. Louis and fund programs and services that insurance does not cover, vital equipment, and major hospital renovations.
“Pediatric medical care is the most expensive to provide, in part because of all the different sizes of equipment needed to treat children ranging in size from a one-pound micro-preemie to a seven-foot-tall high school football player,” said Melissa Hanstein, Event Manager at Children’s Miracle Network’s St. Louis branch. “Our member hospitals also open their doors to all children, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.”
Since their inception in St. Louis in 1988, Children’s Miracle Network has been improving healthcare for children by raising funds for St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. Funds are often raised through national corporate partners, the hospital’s Dance Marathon programs, and a variety of specialty events. Each year, the organization helps nearly 500,000 patients and their family members.
“No child wants to be sick, and no parent wants their child to be in the hospital, but if that happens, our two member hospitals are two of the best in the nation,” Hanstein said. “We work hard to preserve childhood and encourage imagination while a child is in the hospital through music and art therapy, school rooms, playrooms, therapy dogs, and more. This is thanks to our amazing member hospitals and their talented staff. Every year, thousands of children from the St. Louis metropolitan area would not have the wonderful quality of life they have now if not for these caring people. Our support of St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital helps ensure that innovative programs can be funded, crucial equipment can be purchased and that no child ever gets turned away.”
