Costco is helping kids at University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital May 1 – 31

We believe that protecting our local communities and our collective future hinges on the capacities and well-being of children. Because of this, we are driven to do all that we can to keep children safe. Contributions to local member children’s hospitals of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals transform how they meet the urgent needs, while also maintaining an exceptional standard of care. And kids can’t wait!

For 35 years, Costco and its members have joined forces to raise more than $500 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. We know when we help fund medical treatments, equipment and facilities, we ensure children live healthy, fulfilling lives and foster the scientists, inventors, artists and leaders of tomorrow. During the month of May, you can help to change kids’ health for local member children’s hospitals! Shop online or in-warehouse at Costco, donate to help kids like Kinley. Kinley was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 5 in 2017. Kinley went through 802 days of cancer treatment & is now in remission! On the first day of the Costco Campaign, Kinley headed to her local Costco in Davenport, IA and bought Squishmallows for all the kids on the pediatric cancer unit. She is going to bring these to the hospital for her next appointment this summer.

The Costco fundraising campaign runs through May 31 where funds go to the local member hospital to directly help kids, like Kinley, have a life full of wonder and possibility in our community. Since 1988, Costco employees and members have donated over $500,000 to University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. Today, we are transforming a child’s future. Children’s hospitals are on the frontlines to provide the treatments and cures patients desperately need, but they can’t do it alone. 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 and our world for years to come.

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