HARLINGEN, Texas — Driscoll Children’s Hospital announced that Stripes Convenience Stores of South Texas raised $197,000 through its in-store charitable fundraising campaign for Driscoll Children’s Hospital.

The hospital’s news release said Driscoll Children’s Hospital specialty clinics in Corpus Christi, Victoria, the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo, Eagle Pass, and Del Rio benefited from the fundraisers.

In November, customers purchased the $1 paper icon to donate while shopping at Stripes. In return customers received $1 off any two bottles of 1 liter of LIFEWTR water, said the news release.
