CVS Caremark Charitable Trust donates funds to help those in Colorado impacted by flash floods

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, a private foundation created by CVS Caremark, has announced a donation of more than $10,000 in support of families and communities that have been affected by the flash floods in Larimer and Boulder counties in north-central Colorado. 

Since last week, areas of Colorado have been affected by heavy rains, which have displaced thousands of residents, destroyed nearly 20,000 homes and washed out roads, highways, bridges and communications lines.

The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust has donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with the shelters, meals and clean-up supplies for those that had to leave their homes in the wake of the floods.

"The impact of these devastating floods will be long-lasting in Colorado and we are committed to supporting disaster relief efforts through our partners at the Red Cross," stated Eileen Howard Boone, president of CVS Caremark Charitable Trust. "We are saddened by the lives lost and know that in addition to food and shelter, the Red Cross is providing comfort and hope for those who need it most.  We want to ensure that the local communities affected by this terrible disaster receive the services and supplies they need on their road to recovery."
