STAMFORD, Conn. — Actavis has donated $200,000 worth of medicines to help people affected by Hurricane Sandy, a charity organization said Thursday.
AmeriCares announced that it donated the antibiotics, pediatric medicines and other drugs to healthcare providers helping affected families in New York and New Jersey within days of the storm. Actavis was acquired earlier this year by Watson Pharmaceuticals.
"Actavis responded swiftly and generously to meet the medical needs of storm victims," AmeriCares VP corporate relations Geoff Kneisel said. "The company's donations were an amazing help and were immediately delivered to healthcare providers and first responders in the most devastated areas."
