Partners Unite: Recognizing Our Consumer Goods & Restaurant Fundraising Partners

In these difficult times, the way we work and live has changed dramatically. This is evident in the lives of employees of our grocery, consumer goods and restaurant corporate partners.


From long hours, to anxious customers, to modified opening/closing times, to limited inventory, to extra sanitation processes, these employees are on the frontlines of helping keep things on track and providing us the goods we need.


We are grateful to these partners who are looking out for everyone in our communities. We extend a special thanks to those that have made extra accommodations to open early for first responders and seniors, so they are able to access the basic essentials they and their families need during this time of uncertainty.


Prior to COVID-19, these partners worked hard every year to raise vital funds for kids treated at our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Freeman Health System. Today, they are rightly focused on helping us navigate our current situation.


Here’s how you can support these partners so that we can all get back to helping local kids like Dawson as soon as possible. With these partners’ continued support, and the dedication of our local communities, together, we can change kids’ health and change the future.
