Cheers to the Miracle Makers

Date: 08/30/2018

The Bangor Sam’s Club and nine Walmart stores in the region have kicked off their yearly campaign to help kids who are cared for at Eastern Maine Medical Center, our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals program! This year’s campaign began on Monday, August 27 and continues through September 30.

The Walmart stores in Bangor, Brewer, Calais, Ellsworth, Houlton, Lincoln, Palmyra, Presque Isle, and Skowhegan have a goal of raising $100,000 to help buy an ultrasound machine for Eastern Maine Medical Center Maternal Fetal Medicine. Sam’s Club also has a goal of $100,000, and they are raising money for three new ventilators in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

The money is raised one dollar (or more!) at a time at the cash register. Sam’s Club is also hosting several fundraising events, including weekly barbeques, a Trunk or Treat Halloween celebration, and a Miracle Mash carnival.

Eastern Maine Medical Center relies on the support of our generous community partners to help us provide the level of care children and their families depend on. Thank you to the employees and customers of Sam’s Club and Walmart for helping us make miracles right here in Maine!
