Love's Travel Stops has raised $1.1 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the country during its annual five-week fundraising campaign — marking a record effort by the company in the 13 years it has participated in the drive. More than 270 Love's locations nationwide contributed by selling paper donation hearts in the amounts of $1, $5, and $20. Many Love's stores also organized local events to raise money, including bake sales, car washes, softball tournaments, motorcycle rallies, and grand prize raffles.
“We are thrilled with this year's campaign,” said Jenny Love Meyer, Love's communications director. “Our location growth and the tremendous enthusiasm of our store teams have enabled us to increase our contribution to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals by nearly 15% over last year. We thank our customers for supporting our campaign every year, and we appreciate our dedicated employees for the amazing work they do to raise money for their local children's hospitals.”
