Rite Aid presents $15,000 check to Tuesday's Children

Money raised in two-day flu vaccination event at Grand Central Terminal in October

NEW YORK — A charity for 9/11 victims and their families and victims of terrorism worldwide got a big check from retail pharmacy chain Rite Aid at an event in New York's Grand Central Terminal Wednesday morning.

Rite Aid presented a $15,000 check to Tuesday's Children at its store in the train station, with Rite Aid regional VP Paul Perinetti and Tuesday's Children executive director Terry Sears in attendance. The money came from a two-day event in October in which the retailer delivered flu shots to commuters at the station.

"We're just thrilled to be able to do this with Tuesday's Children," Perinetti told Drug Store News.

Perinetti said he "absolutely" saw similar benefits happening in the future.

"We're very passionate about what we do, and having partners like Rite Aid just makes it so much better," Sears told Drug Store News.
