Supporting those that Support the Kids: Grocery and Consumer Goods Partners

This is the first in a series of posts highlighting our corporate partners who have done so much to help kids and now society as a whole during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In these difficult times, the way we work and live has changed dramatically. This is evident in the lives of employees of our grocery and consumer goods corporate partners. 

From long hours, to anxious customers, to modified opening/closing times, to limited inventory, to extra sanitation processes, these employees are on the frontlines of helping keep things on track and providing us the goods we need. 

We are grateful to these partners who are looking out for everyone in their community. We extend a special thanks to those that have made extra accommodations to open early for first responders and seniors so they are able to access the basic essentials they and their families need during this time of uncertainty.

Prior to COVID-19, these partners worked hard every year to raise vital funds for kids treated at CMN Hospitals across North America. Today, they are rightly focused on helping us navigate our current situation. 

Here’s how you can support these partners so that we can all get back to helping kids like Noah as soon as possible. With these partners’ continued support, and the dedication of our local communities, together, we can change kids’ health; and change the future. 


Keep your family well by stocking up, but not too much, on essentials to refresh your cleaning supplies, paper products and fill your pantry and freezer at Costco.
