CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid has raised more than $50 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since becoming a sponsor in 1994, the retail pharmacy chain said Monday.
Rite Aid stores have been selling $1 paper Miracle Balloons since April in a campaign that will end Saturday, having raised $2.9 million so far this year. To mark the $50 milestone, celebrations will take place at stores in Bronx, N.Y.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Hershey, Pa.; Norfolk, Va.; and Eugene, Ore.
“I’m so proud of our company and associates for raising a total of more than $50 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” Rite Aid president and CEO John Standley said. “It’s one of Rite Aid’s core values to be a caring neighbor, and through our partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the help of our generous customers, we’re helping to make miracles happen for sick and injured children right in our own communities.”
