Love’s Travel Stops and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals announced a $2 million donation that will benefit 92 CMN Hospitals across the country. Love’s recently wrapped up a five-week fundraising campaign at its 304 travel stop and country store locations.

Love’s employees and customers worked together to raise the record amount for its 15th campaign, most of which came one dollar at a time.
 
During the campaign, Love’s team members sold paper hearts for donations and organized grassroots fundraising events for their communities like golf tournaments, bake sales, cookouts and music concerts. Across the country, managers shaved their heads, took pies in the face and even kissed pigs to motivate their teams to raise even more.

This year, Love’s store teams and customers raised $1.5 million, and the
additional $500,000 came from golf tournaments organized by employees at corporate offices in Oklahoma City and Houston, as well as corporate donations and money donated at air pumps at Love’s locations.
 
All funds benefit the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital where the money was raised, so 92 of CMN’s 170 hospitals will benefit from the Love’s $2 million donation. Love’s has raised a total of $9.5 million in 15 years supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
