Children's Miracle Network Campaign Month

May is Children's Miracle Network Campaign Month at Costco. They match roughly 21% of donations gathered from the community so this is your chance to make the biggest impact. Donators will have a large balloon cut out with their company name displayed on the front-end registers showing their support for the Children's Miracle Network Hospital.

Donations are 100% tax write-off and Costco can pick up donations from businesses to save you a trip to their store.
