The Miracle Month of May has just begun, with communities all over the country helping to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, including Renown Children’s Hospital. Look for opportunities throughout our area this month to make miracles happen for children with complex medical conditions and their families.
May marks the month of miracles for children and their families, and local businesses are once again taking up the cause to help purchase new equipment for Renown Children’s Hospital, northern Nevada’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Soon you will see the familiar Children’s Miracle Network balloons popping up at stores all over town.
Local Support for the Children’s Miracle Network
Children’s Miracle Network partners Costco, Chico’s, White House/Black Market and Soma Intimates have scheduled special offers to encourage the community to join in the effort. The Shops at Renown are also selling paper balloons for a donation of $1 or more at Starbucks and Sierra Café.
Since 1988, Costco has participated in a monthlong Miracle Balloon Campaign each May at all United States and Canada warehouses. At the checkout, cashiers invite Costco members to make a donation and write their names on the balloons to be displayed at the front of the warehouse. Locally, Costco has raised more than $260,000 for equipment for Renown Children’s Hospital.
The funds raised through the Costco campaign will go toward the purchase and installation of an Angel View Web Camera system for the Renown Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Angel View cameras provide parents, family and friends the ability to see their infant in real-time, 24/7, through a secure online portal. The technology allows parents to stay connected to their babies and receive reassurance around the clock.
Chico’s, White House/Black Market and Soma Intimates have special offers to benefit the cause through July 2. Chico’s and White House/Black Market will donate $12.50 from the purchase price of each $25 limited edition “Miracle Locket” sold while supplies last through July 2. Throughout May, Soma will donate $1 with the sale of every Soma Embraceable Pajama Separate.
