CMN Hospitals Announces New Partnership with Bob’s Discount Furniture

Customers Can Support Kids and Families Treated at their Local Children’s Hospital by visiting Bob’s Complimentary In-Store Cafes

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (Jan. 4, 2022)Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is excited to welcome Bob’s Discount Furniture as a new regional partner to the network supporting 38 local children’s hospitals. Built on a foundation of value, honesty and integrity, Bob’s Discount Furniture was founded in 1991 to provide quality furniture at a price everyone can afford, in a fun, and haggle-free environment. When Bob Kaufman founded the company in 1991, he knew that making giving back a part of the Bob’s culture was the right thing to do. A staple in each Bob’s Discount Furniture store, the Bob’s Café is more than just free goodies and gourmet coffee, it’s also one of the ways that Bob’s gives back to the community.

Through Bob’s Café Collections for a Cause program (part of Bob’s Outreach program), Bob’s customers can donate in support of CMN Hospitals from Jan. 1, 2022 – March 31, 2022, at the café in every one of their 150 locations. Funds raised will go to the local member hospital of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Bob’s will also be matching donations up to $75,000.

“Caring for the community – especially causes related to children – has been a core value of Bob’s since we opened our doors over 30 years ago,” said Chuck James, SVP of Store Operations for Bob’s Discount Furniture. “We’re proud to embark on this new partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and invite everyone to visit our in-store Cafés to join us in supporting this great organization.”

Children’s hospitals are on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations, but they can’t do it alone. Partners like Bob’s Discount Furniture help CMN Hospitals unify communities on a mission to help kids grow up healthier, stronger and ready for tomorrow. Every dollar raised stays local and supports each member hospital’s most urgent needs, whether that’s providing charitable care, investing in research to discover life-saving treatments and cures, training the next generation of doctors and nurses, or offering families comfort and peace of mind during the most trying moments of their lives.

“When we positively impact the health of even one child, we create a ripple effect felt by our communities for years to come,” said Teri Nestel, President and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “We’re grateful for partners like Bob’s Discount Furniture who rally in support of our cause and create more opportunities for everyone to make a difference.
