Big Red Stores, Employees, and Communities Raise Record Amount for Arkansas Children’s

Big Red Stores, their employees and the communities they operate in helped raise $150,541 for children in Arkansas during their annual Arkansas Children’s Campaign this year. From bake sales to raffle tickets, Big Red Store employees worked hard to help the company surpass their goal of $115,000 for this year’s campaign.
From the Arkansas Children’s website, “Arkansas Children’s is centered around children in the State of Arkansas. Arkansas Children’s is the only hospital system in the state that is solely dedicated to caring for children. With a pediatric research institute, a foundation, clinics, education and outreach, Children’s Hospital has many financial needs to continue helping children in Arkansas.”
Big Red Stores is passionate about helping children in Arkansas get the care they need to stay healthy. Over the course of the past ten years, Big Red Stores, together with their communities have helped raise over $730,000 for children in Arkansas, through Arkansas Children’s.
Kait Ross, Senior Development Officer of the Arkansas Children’s Foundation stated –
“Big Red Stores have achieved incredible success this year through their fundraising campaign for Arkansas Children’s. Collectively surpassing their goal by more than $30,000 speaks to Big Red Store’s commitment to child health and wellbeing. We are grateful for community partners like Big Red Stores who are championing children across the state.”
Big Red Stores wants to thank their communities, customers and their hard-working employees for the compassion and commitment they had to raise $150,541 for Arkansas Children’s this year. Without compassionate people in the communities we operate in, this would have never been possible.
