COVID-19 has taken a toll on nonprofits of all types, but it has also had unexpected consequences on the economy as a whole. Case in point, the nationwide chain shortage is affecting retailers throughout the country.
Many grocery stores and big box retailers are scrambling to adapt. Walmart has converted select registers to only accept credit cards. This comes at a time when the grocery supergiant is running one of its largest donate-at-the-register campaigns for Childrenâ€™s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Phoenix Childrenâ€™s Hospital is CMNHâ€™s local beneficiary of funds raised during Walmartâ€™s campaign. Without change, Walmart and Samâ€™s Club have adapted to give customers the option to round up their bill to the nearest dollar for Phoenix Childrenâ€™s, even when paying with a credit card.
Through July 31, Walmart and Samâ€™s Club customers can â€œround upâ€ at the register, online or via the Walmart App to help kids and families struggling with some of the biggest health obstacles imaginable.
To donate, place an order online at walmart.com, on the Walmart App, or visit your local Walmart or Sam's Club to round up at the register. To learn more about Phoenix Children's Hospital, visit http://www.phoenixchildrens.org.
