Love's Travel Stops Goes Above and Beyond for Children’s Health

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 - Campus News -

Love's Travel Stops annual five-week fundraising campaign raised a record $300,830 for Children's Hospital Foundation through several fundraising events.
 
Love's Travel Stops employees in Oklahoma City and surrounding cities put their hearts into raising funds for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals by asking customers to purchase $1, $5 or $20 heart icons to benefit Children's Hospital Foundation. Love's corporate headquarters hosted a vendor golf tournament that raised $83,000 to go towards the campaign total. Several locations got their communities involved in various fundraising events including bake sales, pumping gas for tips and in-store drawings helping to raise additional funds.
 
This is Love's 14th year supporting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals with a fundraising campaign. In 2011, Love's raised $145,063 to benefit Oklahoma's children. The company has donated more than $7 million nationwide through the years.  Like all CMN Hospitals fundraisers, the funds raised from Love's five-week campaign will fund pediatric research, education and clinical care.
 
"Each year the Love's teams come up with new ingenious ways to raise substantial money and this year they hit new heights," said Jan Dunham, CMN Hospitals Director. "We know it is a lot of work for team members to orchestrate such a hugely successful campaign, and we are so extremely thankful for their accomplishment in a record breaking year.  We want to applaud Love's Travel Stops' teams, their customers and the Love family for their heart and determination to help the sick children of Oklahoma."
 
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is an international non-profit organization dedicated to helping children by raising funds and awareness while keeping 100 percent of donations in the community where they are raised.  Children's Hospital Foundation is a proud affiliate of CMN Hospitals and is dedicated to providing funding for pediatric programs in research, education and clinical care for Oklahoma's children.
