HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – Costco stores in Norfolk and Newport News are conducting their annual fundraising campaign to benefit CHKD throughout the month of September. 

Make a donation when checking out at Costco stores located at 850 Glenrock Road in Norfolk and 12121 Jefferson Avenue in Newport News and support the kids at CHKD. For 32 years, Costco has been a partner with Children’s Miracle Network, which raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals, including CHKD. 

Since 1995, Costco employees and members have donated more than $700,000 for kids treated at CHKD.

Children and their families are being affected directly and indirectly by the coronavirus pandemic. We know we can address the most challenging health issues of today while preventing and preparing for those to come. But we can’t do it alone. 

Thank you for donating today. When we change kids’ health, we change the future – for all of us.
