WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in New York, northern Pennsylvania, and Vermont, is pleased to begin its annual campaign for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH). The campaign is now officially underway at all participating Tops Friendly Market locations and will run through July 6, 2019.

Customers can support the CMNH campaign by purchasing a $1.00 Children’s Miracle Network Miracle Balloon or round up their change at any participating Tops, where 100% of the proceeds will be donated back to the local women and children’s hospitals in its communities. Additional store events including basket raffles, auctions, and other special events will also be held to support the campaign. Thanks to the generous support of its shoppers over the twelve years Tops has been involved in supporting the campaign they have helped to successfully raise over $1.45 million dollars.
