CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid announced Tuesday that its charitable arm has donated funds and filtration masks to the American Red Cross to benefit ongoing relief and recovery efforts in communities across south central Pennsylvania that were affected by Tropical Storm Lee.
The Rite Aid Foundation donated $15,000 to the south central Pennsylvania region of the American Red Cross, in addition to 10,000 filtration masks, as requested by the American Red Cross.
Rite Aid operates 71 pharmacies and employs more than 4,370 people in south central Pennsylvania.
“While the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Lee changed the lives of many Pennsylvanians in a matter of minutes, the cleanup and recovery process will take much longer,” Rite Aid Foundation president Mary Sammons said. “We are proud to partner with the American Red Cross and hope our donation will help meet the needs of our neighbors in south central Pennsylvania as they continue to rebuild and recover from the devastating flooding in the months to come.”
