Westlake ACE store teams partner with their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
Each year our Westlake ACE stores fundraise through in-store drives, events, and other projects.
Each year our Westlake ACE store teams partner with their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) to fundraise through in-store drives, events, and other projects.
Due to our customers’ generous giving and associates’ purposeful work in 2019, we reached a new benchmark by raising $665,000. In the past seven years we have been honored to provide $2.6 million to our Network Hospitals. We celebrate that and are so grateful to be part of something that is so life-impacting.
Since our company’s brand stands for “helpful,” we can’t think of anything better than helping sick children in the communities we serve. Best of all, money raised locally, stays local!
Each year at our annual General Manager Conference, we celebrate individuals and stores in their fundraising activities throughout the year.
The money that is raised is used in a number of different ways. Here are a few statistics that we are proud of:
- Approximately half of our donations help families that do not have the ability to pay for healthcare. In the USA, 50% of the children do not have adequate health care coverage. No child will ever be turned away from a CMNH. As a company, we are helping to make sure that continues.
- Approximately 25% of our donations help pay for life-saving equipment needed for children.
- The rest of the money we raise goes toward funding research, educating families on healthy and safe living, and supports child-life areas in the hospitals.
- As cancer is the second leading cause of death for children, CMNH is pushing hard to drive more research on this disease. On any given day, more than 2,500 kids are being treated for cancer.
- Injury is the No. 1 leading cause of childhood death in the USA. CMN Hospitals treat 16,000 children with trauma every single day.
A little more information about CMNH:
- 62 children enter a CMN hospital every minute.
- 1 in 10 children in North America are treated by a CMN hospital each year.
- Every year CMN Hospitals provide 32 million patient visits for 10 million kids.
