Chain will launch its 27th annual campaign in August.
CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid plans to help to change kids’ health and change the future in August, when it rolls out its annual in-store customer fundraising campaign benefiting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The campaign will run Aug. 1-28. All funds donated by customers will benefit 53 local children’s hospitals providing lifesaving care and services for kids in Rite Aid communities. This marks the 27th year for Rite Aid’s annual campaign, with customer support helping the company and its public charity, The Rite Aid Foundation, raise and donate more than $100 million overall to CMN Hospitals.
“The impact of every dollar raised goes far beyond hospital walls. When we ensure kids live healthy lives, we help them become the teachers, scientists, artists, inventors and leaders of tomorrow,” said Bill Engen, senior vice president of retail operations for Rite Aid. “Every year we are deeply touched by our customers’ caring commitment to children’s health and look forward to rallying with them to change lives this summer.”
During this year’s campaign, customers can donate during every in-store transaction at Rite Aid. In addition to patient services, charitable care and equipment, donations help pioneer research that transforms how hospitals care for children not just in their youth, but throughout their lives.
“The ripple effects of donations impact nearly every aspect of treatment and services for children’s hospitals, and without the help of caring partners like Rite Aid, many may face significant impacts in the short- and long-term,” said Teri Nestel, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Every dollar Rite Aid customers, associates and supplier partners raise truly changes kids’ health and changes the future in every community our member hospitals serve.”
As the COVID-19 pandemic proved, children’s hospitals are on the frontlines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations. The need hasn’t ended.
All donations made during Rite Aid’s campaign will stay local, supporting the children’s hospitals in customers’ communities.
