Donations can be made at the register, self-checkout or online. A QR code will be available for shoppers to scan and donate through their phones. Plus, customers can “Round Up” at both stores. The “Round Up” portion of the campaign offers customers a simple and easy way to give by rounding up purchases to the nearest dollar and donating the difference. Walmart.com andthe Walmart App will also have “Round Up” options.

All funds raised at the 50 local Walmart and six local Sam’s Club locations stay in the region to help sick and injured children in UC Davis Children’s Hospital’s 33-county service area. Associates raised more than $481,000 in 2021, bringing Walmart and Sam’s Club’s total donation to CMN at UC Davis to more than $9 million.

U.S. and Canadian stores have generated a billion dollars plus for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals since the Walmart partnership began in 1987. In 2021 alone, more than $50 million was raised through fundraisers and register donations.
