The History of Miss America Serves
On April 7, 2018, Miss America Contestants and volunteers all across the country will join forces with their friends and families to participate in community service activities like cleaning parks, beaches or neighborhoods, assisting youth and senior organizations, visiting nursing homes and CMN Hospitals, collecting clothes, stocking food pantries, or feeding the homeless.
Join Miss America Serves to support your local community and fundraise, or donate to the community service project or the participant you support. All of the funds raised for Miss America Serves stay within each state and are given to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals that supports the children in the state, as well as the state's Miss America and Miss America's Outstanding Teen state scholarships.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has a 25-year history working with the Miss America Organization. The charity was officially named the Miss America Organization's national platform in 2007. Since then, the partnership has raised more than $17 million, benefiting member CMN Hospitals across the U.S., as well as Miss America scholarships.
