March of Dimes and Kmart Team Up to Save Babies

Springfield’s Kmart held an in-store event today to help raise awareness and donations leading up to the annual March for Babies walk this Saturday in Washington D.C. Kmart is the longest standing corporate supporter and largest contributor to the March of Dimes. To date, Kmart has raised $90 million.

Aimee Gahm, Kmart's Store Manager, said, "I was aware of March of Dimes before I came to Kmart about 3 years ago because I was a nurse. For myself and my team, we are very dedicated to the cause because it is about saving lives, but it is also about educating people." 

Kmart collaborated with March of Dimes to create a 12-foot inflatable dime that has been “rolling out” across the country. Customers are encouraged to sign the oversized dime and make donations.

Once tented and open to the elements, the L-shaped reception hall is now lavishly adorned with classic finishes and glass doors at every turn opening to the balcony offering bird’s-eye views of the White House and Washington Monument. Sources say the first event in the newly renovated spaces was in January of this year.
