Customers of Haggen Food & Pharmacy and TOP Food & Drug stores recently donated $42,283 to Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Haggen and TOP Food stores in Washington offered Miracle Balloons for $1 apiece from June 2-15 as a fundraiser for Seattle Children’s Hospital. The stores also presented barbecues with donations going to Seattle Children’s.
The donations support uncompensated care, enabling children to receive medical care regardless of their family’s ability to pay. The annual drive at Haggen and TOP Food stores now has raised more than $310,000 for uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s since 2004.
“The generosity of our customers was amazing as donations were up 30 percent this year,” said Becky Skaggs, spokesperson for Haggen and TOP Food stores.
Founded in 1907, Seattle Children’s serves as the pediatric referral center for Washington, Alaska, Idaho and Montana. For more information, visit www.seattlechildrens.org.
