Sunshine Ace Hardware is launching its “Round Up for the Kids” charitable campaign to help raise money for Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida through the Children’s Miracle Network.

From March 16 through April 30, customers at any of Sunshine Ace Hardware’s nine locations along Florida’s Gulf Coast can round up their purchases at the cash register to support Children’s Miracle Network. Sunshine Ace announced in December that the company had chosen Children’s Miracle Network as its “primary charity partner” and was developing a year-round fundraising campaign to support the nonprofit organization, which welcomed Golisano Children’s Hospital as a member hospital in 2019.

Sunshine Ace associates and management toured Golisano Children’s Hospital on Feb. 27 to learn more about how donations from the company and its generous customers would impact our local patient care in Southwest Florida.

“Golisano Children’s Hospital offers world-class health care to more than 30,000 patients each year, and it’s incredibly important that local families don’t have to travel 100 miles or more to receive quality care,” said Michael Wynn, president of Sunshine Ace. “The hospital treats children with cancer, broken bones, the flu, terminal illnesses, premature births and many other conditions, and I’m hopeful that the generosity of Sunshine Ace customers will help the medical team at Golisano Children’s Hospital continue providing lifesaving treatment to these children.”

Donations at Sunshine Ace Hardware stores will support research and training, purchase equipment and pay for uncompensated care at Golisano Children’s Hospital.

Sunshine Ace stores are located in Collier, Lee, Charlotte and Pinellas counties. For more information, please visit
