MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Fred’s Pharmacy on Friday announced that its annual spring campaign raised $330,000 for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. Fred’s said its customers donated money for 39 CMN Hospitals across the country.
“We’ve seen firsthand how a $1 donation can make a difference in the lives of children,” Fred’s EVP store operations John Foley said. “Our decade-long partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has enabled us to directly support the children in our local communities who need it the most.”
From Feb. 28 to April 9, Fred’s stores offered its customers a discount coupon for popular products in exchange for a small donation to CMN Hospitals. Since the two organizations began their partnership in 2006, Fred’s has raised more than $6 million for CMN Hospitals.
“Without the dedication and commitment of our loyal partners, CMN Hospitals wouldn’t be able to bring greater awareness to and help provide local kids with the best medical care possible,” CMN Hospitals president and CEO John Lauck said. “Through our partnership Fred’s Pharmacy, the funds raised have resulted in changed lives for the children CMN Hospitals serves.”
