It is the time of year when you walk into any Stripes convenience store in the Permian Basin from now through May 5th and see these cool balloons all over the place, plus you will probably be asked if you would like to donate $1 when you check out at the register. We ask that you please do so as it is for an amazing cause!

These 'Miracle balloons' help raise funds for Medical Center Hospital, a Children's Miracle Network hospital. Stripes is a huge supporter of CMN and has been for the past 15 years, helping raise more than $5 million for sick and injured children. 100% of the money raised during the Miracle balloon campaign will help the more than 16,000 children that are treated at Medical Center every year. And while you are giving to a very worthy cause, you will in turn receive a coupon good for a free 12 ounce Slush monkey and buy one get one free Smokin' Barrel Peanuts or Trail Mix snack.
