Treat yourself to a BLIZZARD on Thursday will help local children in need.
Thursday is Miracle treat day, where $ 1 or more of BLIZZARD sales at local Dairy Queens supports Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) hospitals. The funding helps local children with urgent, high-quality care to Gundersen Health System.
Beth Noffsinger, a specialist at CMN hospitals in Gundersen, told Z93 that donations remain local.
Funding supports music therapy, art therapy, some horse therapy and more. Things that might not be covered by insurance or only partially covered.
“We see things as basic as providing meal vouchers to people while their children say in pediatrics on the hospital campus, whether they are there overnight or for a longer term stay,” said Noffsinger. “It’s something that benefits a lot of families, but we can help with gas cards for people when they travel, for large items in the hospital. “
Donations from MCN have helped Gundersen obtain certain equipment, as well as fund equipment suitable for children.
Participating DQ locations include La Crosse, Onalaska, Tomah, Winona, Caledonia, Sparta and Viroqua. Funds raised help the children of La Crosse and the surrounding 24 counties which are all part of the CMN’s service area.
