pediatric and neonatal intensive care programs, fund lifesaving research and
support community education programs.
“This is a great way for us to give back to the community,”
said Becca Cash, manager of Chico’s in Johnson City. “As many of our shoppers
are mothers, I know they’re touched by the challenges that face some of
Wellmont’s smallest patients.”
The store will be open that day from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m.
“We appreciate Chico’s investment in our region’s children,”
said Todd Norris, Wellmont's senior vice president of system advancement. “As a

improve the lives of children who are entrusted to our care.”

sponsor of Children’s Miracle Network.
