What is the Glennon Card?

The Glennon Card is a unique, 10-day discount shopping program organized by the SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation and the Glennon Guild, a 350 member women’s organization serving the children cared for by SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.

Here's How the Glennon Card Works:

An individual purchases a Glennon Card which entitles the cardholder to a 20% discount on regularly priced merchandise at more than 250 participating stores, salons and restaurants for the 10-day shopping period of October 16-25. 100% of card sales benefit the kids cared for by SSM Health Cardinal Glennon.
