Children’s of Alabama received a $26,000 donation from the United Merchants Association of Alabama (UMA) as a result of fundraising efforts across the state in the last two years.

In collaboration with Buffalo Rock, 200 UMA members convenience stores across Alabama participated in a fundraiser for Children’s from July – September of last year. For every purchase of the Pepsi family of brands, the UMA donated a portion of the proceeds and collected donations at the register to support ill and injured children treated at Children’s, the state’s only freestanding pediatric hospital.
