Woonsocket, R.I. — Following the devastating damage caused by recent hurricanes, on September 19, 2017, CVS Health launched an in-store customer donation campaign to support the rebuilding efforts underway in the impacted areas. As part of this initiative, the company pledged to match all customer donations with critical products and supplies, up to $10 million.
"We've been impressed by the overwhelming expression of generosity among our colleagues and customers across the country who continue to seek ways to help the people impacted by these devastating storms," says Helena B. Foulkes, executive vice president, CVS Health and President, CVS Pharmacy. "We'll continue to do our part to deliver the necessary resources and support that these communities need to begin the long recovery process."
Through September 28, customers can donate $1, $3 or more at the register of CVS Pharmacy locations. The total amount donated by customers will be matched by CVS Health with up to $10 million in product donations, including cleaning supplies, non-perishable food and personal care items.
CVS Health and the CVS Health Foundation have been working with relief agencies on the ground in impacted areas, and will continue to do so as additional storms loom.
