Shoppers who buy some special balloons in June can help bring a smile and much needed care to young patients at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

TOP Food and Drug stores in Washington are offering Miracle Balloons from June 2-15 as a fundraiser for Seattle Children’s Hospital. Sales of the $1 paper balloons, available at store checkstands, will support uncompensated care, enabling children to receive medical care regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Seattle Children’s Hospital will provide over $100 million in uncompensated care this year

Also, TOP Food and Drug stores are offering barbecued hot dogs and chips in their parking lots from 11 am to 4 pm Saturday, June 5. Donations from the barbecue event also will go to Seattle Children’s.

The Shoreline Top Food store is located at Midvale N and N 185th, one block east of Aurora.

“Seattle Children’s provides tremendous care to so many families in our region,” said Becky Skaggs, spokesperson for TOP Food and Drug. “All of these small contributions add up and result in helping many children.”

Founded in 1907, Seattle Children’s serves as the pediatric referral center for Washington, Alaska, Idaho and Montana. For more information, visit their website.

Haggen, Inc. operates 33 supermarkets in Washington and Oregon under the TOP Food and Drug and Haggen Food and Pharmacy names. Headquartered in Bellingham, it is the largest independent grocer and eighth-largest private company based in the State of Washington. For more information, visit their website.
