Love’s collects critical donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

SAN ANTONIO, TX (August 24, 2023) – Beginning on Aug. 25, Love’s Travel Stops’ Balloon Campaign is raising critical funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals benefiting CHRISTUS Children’s. Love’s locations from coast to coast are coming together to change kids’ health to change the future. 

Donate at Love’s from Aug. 25 to Sept. 29. Your donation goes to the member hospital supporting kids’ health in the local community. The member hospital provides kids the urgent, high-quality care they need to thrive and offer their families comfort in knowing what’s next. 

“Children’s hospitals are on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations. But they can’t do it alone,” said Teri Nestel, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Without the help of caring partners like Love’s Travel Stops, children will face significant impacts in the short- and long-term. Every dollar raised can change kids’ health to change the future for each community our member hospitals serve.”

“At CHRISTUS Children’s, our associates are playing an essential role to provide much- needed care for kids and their families. We are conducting research, offering preventative care, providing health and safety education and other support services to build healthier communities,” said Terry Kyle, chief executive officer and chief development officer, CHRISTUS Children’s Foundation. “We are so grateful for Love’s Travel Stops for not only providing great products to our communities, but also enhancing the lives of our future generations.”

By raising funds for treatments, facilities and programs like pet therapy, local member hospitals can address the most challenging health issues of today while preventing and preparing for those to come tomorrow.

When we change kid’s health, we change the future – for all of us.
