Corner Store Launches 23rd Annual Fundraiser

Corner Store customers and team members are giving back to local kids treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals during its 23rd annual Miracle Balloon campaign. Corner Store locations in Colorado, Texas, Arizona, California, New Mexico, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas will raise funds for 36 member Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals during the month of April.

From April 1-30, Corner Store customers will be able to purchase a $1 or $5 Miracle Balloon, buy a glow bracelet or donate change to support sick and injured kids in the community.

“Last year Corner Store and Nice ‘N Easy crossed the $25 million fundraising milestone,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “We’re so grateful for Corner Store’s long-term support of their communities and the strong relationships that exist between individual locations and our member hospitals.”

Collected funds will benefit children like Logan. Logan has Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease—a central nervous system defect of the brain that affects mobility and speech skills. Today, there are only 1,000 known cases. Local donations help provide access to the specialized care Logan receives in speech, physical and occupational therapy sessions every week. He also sees a pediatric neurologist every six months on top of annual visits with a neuro-ophthalmologist and a pediatric orthopedic surgeon.

“I’m so proud of our employees and customers for all they do to support this campaign that helps improve the lives of children and their families,” said Kim Lubel, president and CEO of CST Brands, Inc. which owns and operates Corner Store locations. “These donations support research and training, equipment purchases and pay for uncompensated care, all in support to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.”

Corner Store has raised more than $25 million for pediatric patients since partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 1995. Like all Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraisers, donations made during the Corner Store campaign will stay local to benefit kids in the community.
