Walmart & Sam’s Club spark good to change kids’ health at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at CHRISTUS Health

Walmart and Sam’s Club raise critical donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals


Beginning June 10 through July 7, Walmart and Sam’s Club will host the "Spark Good. Change Kids' Health" fundraising campaign benefiting six CHRISTUS Health ministries through Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) including:

  • CHRISTUS Children’s (San Antonio, Texas)
  • CHRISTUS Ochsner SWLA Health System (Lake Charles, Louisiana)
  • CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System (Beaumont, Texas)
  • CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier Health System (Shreveport, Louisiana)
  • CHRISTUS St. Frances Cabrini Health System (Alexandria, Louisiana)
  • CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System (Tyler, Texas)

Believing that every child deserves a healthy and happy life, Walmart and Sam's Club annually partner with CMN Hospitals across the country to raise necessary funds for the little ones in their communities. Their support makes a world of difference for local children's hospitals, making a positive impact on kids' health.

During the campaign, as customers and members shop at Walmart or Sam's Club, you can "Spark Good" for children in your community by donating at the register, online at or through the Walmart app by rounding up and selecting your local CMN Hospitals partner.

For generations, CHRISTUS Health has proudly served children and families throughout Texas and Louisiana. This tradition of exceptional care continues thanks to the unwavering support of Walmart and Sam's Club. Their dedication to children's health allows our ministries to provide the most advanced pediatric care in their respective communities. This means families can access the specialists and resources they need without the burden of traveling long distances, ensuring the best possible outcomes for their children.

Walmart and Sam’s Club associates are at the heart of the campaign, as so many have strong relationships with their local children’s hospitals. Donations made through the campaign directly benefit local patients and families. Donations support essential medical equipment, life-saving research and family-centered care programs that are all at the core of children’s health.

But they can’t do it alone. Each dollar raised at Walmart and Sam's Club helps our CHRISTUS Health hospitals provide treatments and support patients desperately need today so that they can fulfill their potential for tomorrow.

“The Walmart and Sam’s Club campaign for CMN Hospitals plays a pivotal role in helping our patients and families receive the best possible care,” said Scott Fossey, regional vice president and system director of philanthropy at CHRISTUS Health. “With the help of Walmart and Sam’s Club associates engaging their customers, members, and community, our health systems are able to fulfill the most urgent needs and address the most challenging issues of today for children’s health.”

Since 1987, Walmart and Sam's Club have proudly partnered with CMN Hospitals, collectively raising over $1 billion to support children's health care across North America. This year, they aim to build upon this legacy and make an even greater impact on the lives of children in need.

Together, we can change kids’ health. Together, we can change the future – for all of us.
