Walmart and Sam’s Club Re-Launch Campaign for Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital

After pausing the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising campaign to focus on relief efforts from the devastating Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the greater Baton Rouge area Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are re-launching their campaign to support Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.  Between September 21 and October 29, Walmart and Sam’s Club invite all of their customers to join in support by making a donation to help build the new freestanding Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.

Walmart and Sam’s Club are celebrating 30 years of their partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.  Over the last 30 years, Walmart has raised nearly $1 billion for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the United States and Canada.
