Stripes Raising Funds for Children's Miracle Network

Four-week campaign will benefit 13 children's hospitals

SALT LAKE CITY -- In a campaign that began on March 7, Stripes convenience stores is asking customers to purchase a $1 Miracle Balloon icon for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a children's charity that raises funds for more than 170 pediatric hospitals.

The Miracle Balloon icons are attached to a coupon, providing customers an additional incentive to make the $1 contribution. Stripes c-stores have also stocked their shelves with Monkey Juice, a new children's drink sold exclusively in Stripes stores.

A portion of the profits from Monkey Juice sales will go to [image-nocss] support the work of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. A buy-one-get-one free Monkey Juice coupon is included in the $1 Miracle Balloon icon.

Like all Children's Miracle Network Hospitals fundraisers, the funds raised from Stripe's campaign running during the month of March will help create miracles by funding medical care, research and education that saves and improves the lives of 17 million children treated at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals each year.

Stripes has been a partner of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals since 1997, raising funds for children's hospitals through different fundraising campaigns. In 2010, Stripes raised $471,468 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Corpus Christi, Texas-based Susser Holdings is a third-generation, family-led business that operates more than 525 c-stores in Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma primarily under the Stripes banner. Restaurant service is available in more than 310 of its stores, primarily under the proprietary Laredo Taco Co. brand.
