Retail shopping program benefits
SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital
ST. LOUIS, MO (February 2, 2017) – SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation and the Glennon Guild announced today that the 2017 Glennon Card shopping days will be held October 20 through October 29. Throughout this 10-day shopping period, shoppers who purchase a Glennon Card will receive a generous 20% discount at more than 300 stores, restaurants and salons. All card purchases will benefit the patients and families at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
During the 2016 program, 4,341 Glennon Cards were purchased and raised $219,916 through card sales and generous sponsor support.
“Our patients, staff and physicians are grateful to have such a supportive Guild,” said Steven Burghart, president at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon. “Each year the funds from the Glennon Card program benefit the most immediate and important needs of our hospital, allowing us to continue to provide world-class medical care. An example of one of these needs is our inpatient cancer unit, which is being fully renovated to include larger patient rooms with private bathrooms, a sleeper sofa for parents so they can spend overnights with their children, and a playroom just for children with cancer.
On behalf of everyone at Cardinal Glennon, we thank the Glennon Guild, the retailers and card-buyers for their continued support.”
The Glennon Guild, a ladies auxiliary made up of over 150 volunteers, has been spearheading the Glennon Card program since 2011. In just six years, more than
1 million dollars has been raised to help the patients and families served by the hospital.
