"We are very thankful for our Employees and our Customers who continue
to support our CMN fundraising campaign year after year," said Jenny
Love Meyer, vice president of communications for Love's. "Each year our
incredible store teams look forward to getting involved in this campaign
to help their local CMN Hospital. We are proud to help save lives in
communities where we serve our Customers."

The campaign raises funds and awareness for 170 CMN Hospitals that
provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across North America.
Donations stay local to help care for children in those communities.
This year, Love's hopes to raise more than $3 million through its annual
store campaign, which will benefit 101 partner hospitals.

Customers can support kids in their communities by purchasing paper
balloons at the registers. Balloons can be purchased with or without
additional items. Love's stores nationwide also organize events like
bake sales, cookouts, golf tournaments, 5K runs and more, which provide
Customers with additional opportunities to get involved and donate.

Love's will show additional support for CMN Hospitals this year on
National Coffee Day. Friday and Saturday, September 28 and 29, Love's
will donate money from the sale of all 24-ounce coffees and cappuccinos
to CMN Hospitals. In honor of National Coffee Day, all 24-ounce hot
beverages will cost $1.

"We are so grateful for Love's unwavering commitment to Children's
Miracle Network Hospitals," said John Lauck, president and CEO of
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. "Love's employees and customers
have fueled our hospitals with so many miles of miracles over the years
— like helping provide specialized research, equipment and treatment as
well as care for families regardless of their ability to pay. We're
thrilled to see what the campaign brings this year."
