Children’s Hospital Week

March 18th-24th is Children’s Hospitals Week and we’re ready! To help raise awareness, we’re participating in a “Wear, Share, Give” campaign and you can, too.

As many of you know, Ace believes in helping their communities and we are also proud supporters of the Children’s Miracle Network. Contributions to CMN and Children’s Hospitals fill the funding gap in pediatric health care, providing equipment, treatments, research and charitable care. According to CMN Hospitals president and CEO John Lauck, “Without additional funding, children’s hospitals do not have the resources they need to care for the more 10 million kids treated each year. We need to do more to fill this gap in pediatric health care funding.”

You may see our employees wearing yellow bandages this week to show our support for this very worthy cause. We’ll also give them to you (while supplies last) when you donate. Then, simply take a picture of yourself wearing the bandage and share it on social with the hashtag #ChildrensHospitalWeek (if it’s okay with you, we’d like to take a picture of you with your bandage on and share it on our Facebook page, too). Boom! Not only will you have supported the children, their families, and our local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, but you will have helped raise awareness.

We invite you join us this week (and always) in contributing to help the children in our neighborhoods and the Children’s Hospital in our community. The money raised stays local and helps children and families in our area. Contributing is simple and no amount is too small, every little bit helps. Just stop by your Ace Hardware store and drop your contribution into the CMN fundraising box, or you can go online to Childrens Miracle Network and donate there.

Thank you! We, your neighbors and communities, CMN, and Children’s Hospitals appreciate your support.
