The Rite Aid Foundation announced today a $150,000 donation to the American Red Cross to help the victims, families and communities in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria.

“Nearly two weeks after being hit directly by Hurricane Maria, a category four storm, the need in Puerto Rico remains great,” said Tracy Henderson, director of The Rite Aid Foundation and charitable giving initiatives. “The Rite Aid Foundation hopes that this donation to the American Red Cross will help the people of Puerto Rico in their time of need and let them know they are not alone as they recover and rebuild.”

“We’re deeply grateful for the generosity of The Rite Aid Foundation, whose support will help provide immediate assistance to thousands of families affected by this horrific disaster,” said Jeri Sims, CEO of the American Red Cross Central Pennsylvania Region. “There is a long, difficult road ahead for those impacted by Hurricane Maria and support from partners like The Rite Aid Foundation is critical to aid in the recovery process."

Additionally, Rite Aid, through the efforts of its customers, supplier partners and associates, has also raised more than $81 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the country since 1994.
