Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in New York, northern Pennsylvania, and Vermont, is pleased to begin its annual campaign for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH). The campaign will officially kick off on Sunday, June 19 at all participating Tops Friendly Markets locations and will run through Sunday, July 3, 2022.

More than 10 million kids enter a children’s hospital like Children’s National Hospital across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $7 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
