Love’s commits to Change Kids’ Health

For the 21st year, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores customers and employees are working hard to change kids’ health to change their futures.

Through October 3, Love’s customers can round up on purchases to the nearest dollar or donate any amount at the register. Stores will also be holding raffles and selling CMN Hospitals merchandise, including face coverings to benefit their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Since July 14, Love’s has already raised more than $845,000 asking customers to Round Up the Change to support CMN Hospitals.

“Now more than ever, it’s important for us to help sick and injured kids in the communities where we live and work because of the impacts of COVID-19,” said Jenny Love Meyer, chief culture officer and executive vice president of Love’s. “We are honored to continue our partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals because we know the impacts of their life-saving work.”

Funds raised will help kids like Bella. Since she was young, Bella struggled with fear and anxiety which began to impact her day to day life, primarily in social settings and in school. After exploring other psychiatric facilities, Bella’s parents believed they exhausted all of their resources and they turned to their local children’s hospital, where she learned how to engage healthy coping skills and self-awareness.

Bella will continue to have her struggles, but she sees her time at her children’s hospital in treatment as the key to her success today. She spends far more time talking about her future, believing in herself and accepting the support of her friends, family and professional support group. Best of all, she’s planning for the future and she is determined to use her story and experience to help break down the negative stigma that surrounds mental health in the country.

Because of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals donations, Bella’s children’s hospital is equipped with the technology and resources needed to support patients like Bella every day. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals funding has also assisted in financially supporting therapeutic programs, continued schooling for the patients, and renovating areas of the hospital to provide patients the safe, therapeutic, and nurturing environment they need.

On Sept. 29, Love’s will show additional support for CMN Hospitals during their National Coffee Day promotion. Every hot coffee/beverage sold through the Love’s Connect app on Sept. 29 goes to help sick and injured kids at CMN Hospitals. Any size Love’s hot coffee/beverage is $1 and that $1 is donated to the local CMN Hospital.

Since 1999, Love’s has raised over $31 million for CMN Hospitals across the United States.
