Donations stay local to help Central Washington kids
YAKIMA, Wash. – On Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Wray’s Thriftway at 5605 Summitview Ave., Wray’s and Pepsi Cola Bottling of Yakima will hand over a giant check to Children’s Miracle Network to help local children with special healthcare needs. The check will be presented at 1:30 p.m.
From Memorial Day to Labor Day weekend, a portion of the proceeds from every 24-pack of Pepsi products sold at three Wray’s Thriftway stores has been earmarked to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This is the fourth consecutive year that Pepsi and Wray’s have partnered to raise money for CMNH. The total amount given over the past three years is $6,254.
Proceeds will benefit Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital’s Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit and Pediatric Department, as well as programs and services at Children’s Village, which serves Central Washington children with special health-care needs and their families. Memorial is one of 170 nonprofit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals that treat severely injured and ill children in the U.S. and Canada.
