Costco is Helping Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital Change Kids’ Health May 1-31

We believe that protecting our local communities and our collective future hinges on the capacities and well-being of children. Because of this, we are driven to do all that we can to keep children safe. Contributions to local member children’s hospitals of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals transform how they meet the urgent needs, while also maintaining an exceptional standard of care. And kids can’t wait!

For 35 years, Costco and its members have joined forces to raise more than $500 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. We know when we help fund medical treatments, equipment and facilities, we ensure children live healthy, fulfilling lives and foster the scientists, inventors, artists and leaders of tomorrow.

During the month of May, you can help to change kids’ health at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital! Shop online or in-warehouse at Costco, donate to help kids like Jack and Liam, our 2022 local CMN Champions. Jack and Liam were born at just 29 weeks weighing just over 2lbs each and required a lot of specialized care in order to survive. They were in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for 78 days receiving specialized care.  The boys needed extra breathing support and gained weight more slowly than typical preemies, and the access to incredible respiratory therapists, CPAP machines, nutritionists, and the enhanced baby formula was crucial in their development.  They also needed a higher amount of transfusions due to unexplained anemia, and the hospital’s internal pediatric hematologist consulted our specific situation with partner hospitals around the nation.  Today Liam and Jack are as happy and healthy as any of their peers. Hematologist, urologist, audiologist, and ophthalmologist appointments—most of which were held at Sacred Heart—peppered the first two years of their calendar, and they continue to see specialists to this day.

The Costco fundraising campaign runs through May 31 where funds go to our local Children’s Hospital to directly help kids like Jack and Liam in our community. Since 1995, Costco employees and members have donated more than $3 million dollars for kids treated at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital.

Today, we are transforming a child’s future. Children’s hospitals are on the frontlines to provide the treatments and cures patients desperately need, but they can’t do it alone. Together, we see what the future can be and we’re working to make it a reality. One way you and Costco are helping is by donating at the register to fund the most urgent needs of local children’s hospitals.

Through donations collected during the annual campaign, hospitals can provide treatments and healing patients desperately need today so that they can fulfill their potential for tomorrow—ultimately having ripple effects that positively impact our communities and our world for years to come.

With your help, we can change kids’ health to change the future.
