Costco is Helping UPMC Children’s Hospital Change Kids’ Health May 1-31

Local children’s hospitals are on the frontlines when protecting the health of future generations. But they can’t do it alone. Each dollar that Costco and its members raise through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) improves the health of kids allowing them the opportunity to grow to their full potential.

During the month of May, you can help to change kids’ health for local children’s hospitals through CMN Hospitals during the annual Costco fundraising campaign. Shop online or in-warehouse at Costco, donate to help kids like Hallie Bea. She was born with Diamond-Blackfan anemia, which is a disorder that primarily affects the bone marrow. Later on, she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a cancer that starts in the bone, and decided to do her part to change the world. In between starting a nonprofit to encourage people to join the bone marrow registry, Hallie Bea spends time with Child Life at her children’s hospital making art and inspiring others. Her next mission? Getting a prosthetic leg to help her run again.

With donations, Hallie Bea received the critical care she needed to have a successful leg amputation allowing her to continue advocating for kids with cancer.

The Costco fundraising campaign runs through May 31 where funds go to local children’s hospitals through CMN Hospitals to directly help kids, like Hallie Bea, have a life full of wonder and possibility in our community. Since 1988, Costco employees and members have donated more than $1.6 MILLION for kids treated at UPMC Children’s Hospital.  

Today, we are transforming a child’s future. Together, we see what the future can be and we’re working to make it a reality. One way you and Costco are helping is by donating at the register to fund the most urgent needs of local children’s hospitals.

Through donations collected during the annual campaign, hospitals can provide treatments and healing patients desperately need today so that they can fulfill their potential for tomorrow—ultimately having ripple effects that positively impact our communities for years to come.

With your help, we can change kids’ health to change the future.
