Giant Candle Campaign earns 4% more in 2016!

Each year, GIANT/MARTIN’S conducts a holiday fundraising campaign in support of children’s hospitals in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. Customers donate $1 to purchase a paper candle icon during the grocers’ annual “Candles for Kids” in-store campaign from November 20 through December 3 and get a coupon worth $2 in savings on various Nabisco products.

This year’s Candles for Kids campaign saw a 4% increase in donations made during the campaign–raising more than $656,000 during the two-week event!

This means that Johns Hopkins Children’s CenterUniversity of Virginia Children’s HospitalChildren’s National Health SystemChildren’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMCPenn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital will bring even more miracles to sick and injured children in their areas.

Thank you GIANT/MARTIN’S for being a proud supporter of CMN Hospitals for 20 years, recently eclipsing the $40 million fundraising mark.
