Food Lion Children’s Miracle Network campaign kicks off

Food Lion has kicked off its Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Fall Football Campaign that will run through Sept. 17.
Customers who donate $1 at the register will receive a paper football to acknowledge their support. Customers can also purchase specially marked Kellogg’s and Procter and Gamble products to support the nonprofit organization.
The companies will each make a donation of up to $50,000 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
“This year, we have already raised $2.4 million toward our $4 million goal for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said Sherrii Webb, Food Lion’s community relations manager. “We invite our customers to help us during the next two weeks to collect an additional $1.6 million to provide critical care to thousands in need through this important organization.”
This is the 22nd annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals campaign at Food Lion, which has supported the hospitals since 1991 and has raised more than $45 million.
