Throughout April, customers at all Sunshine Ace stores in Southwest Florida could round up their purchases or choose a specific dollar amount to donate at the register.
Donations collected at Sunshine Ace Hardware stores in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties support Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. Donations made at Crowder Bros. Ace Hardware and Crowder’s Gifts & Gadgets stores in Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch, as well as Sunshine Ace Hardware in Largo, support Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg.
Since declaring Children’s Miracle Network as its primary charitable partner three years ago, Sunshine Ace has raised $284,272 through a series of monthly and seasonal fundraising campaigns.
“Every time we host a fundraising initiative for Children’s Miracle Network, our customers gladly step up to support children and families in our community,” said Sunshine Ace President Michael Wynn. “That’s what a true community is all about – supporting each other in any way possible.”
Children’s Miracle Network hospitals rely on donations and community support to enhance pediatric health care. Donations from Sunshine Ace customers help cover the costs of patient services for children and families, charitable care for patients lacking sufficient funds or insurance, and education programs for patients, families and the community. Donations also help children’s hospitals purchase life-saving equipment and provide advancement services for innovative programs and projects.
