WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in New York, northern Pennsylvania, western Vermont, and north central Massachusetts, 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 in the North Country and will run through July 8, 2017.

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 hospitals in its communities. Additional store events including basket raffles, auctions, and other special events will also be held to support the campaign. Last year alone TOPS raised over $270,000 during the Miracle Balloon event thanks to the generous support of its shoppers, and over the ten years TOPS has been involved in supporting the campaign, successfully raised over $1.2 million dollars.

“TOPS Markets is dedicated to helping the local communities in the markets we serve, and our mission is centered on eradicating hunger and improving the quality of life for children. With the help and compassion of our associates and customers, we know we can make a significant impact by supporting the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital Campaign. Together we truly can make a difference,” said Kathy Romanowski, public and media relations specialist for TOPS.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds and awareness for 171 member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, and charitable care. Since 1983, CMNH has raised more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through the charity’s Miracle Balloon icon. To learn more about CMNH visit
