WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Health will kick off Memorial Day celebrations on May 25 with a special event when it hosts a group of military veterans from across New England at Fenway Park. The seventh-annual CVS Health Baseball Camp for Veterans is a full-day event, including on-field batting practice with Red Sox Hitting Coaches Chili Davis and Victor Rodriguez, a VIP tour of Fenway Park and tickets to the night’s game.

The event is part of CVS Health’s commitment to America’s military heroes and veterans of all abilities. 

In addition to on-field batting practice and a VIP tour, participants will enjoy lunch in the Red Sox dugout; have photos taken in front of the Green Monster; and gain early entry to pregame batting practice and receive tickets to the evening’s game in the CVS Pharmacy Family section.

The veterans participating in the CVS Health Baseball Camp are from the Salute Military Golf Association of New England — a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the game of golf to post 9/11 veterans throughout New England as a form of mental and physical rehabilitation. 

The participating veterans are from the following states and towns:

  • Massachusetts — Attleboro, Bellingham, Boston, Chicopee, Fall River, Gardner, Halifax, Haverhill, Leominster, Mansfield, Montague, Orange, Spencer, Stoneham, Weymouth and Wilmington
  • Rhode Island — Manville, Pawtucket and Warwick

Dreft rolls out 65% plant-based Dreft purtouch

CINCINNATI — Baby laundry detergent brand Dreft has announced the latest addition to its offerings. The company on Thursday launched Dreft purtouch, a 65% plant-based hypoallergenic baby detergent, which it says is made with naturally derived ingredients.

Dreft purtouch is free of dyes, chlorine, phosphates, ethanolamine and optical brighteners, the brand said, noting that it also is manufactured with 100% renewable wind power electricity at a zero waste-to-landfill site. The launch comes as Dreft shares the results of its survey finding that more than half of expecting parents said they began reading product labels more closely and buying more natural food and drinks after learning they were expecting. Seventy percent of those surveyed planned to remove potentially harmful products or objects from their home once their babies arrive.

“Whether in their nurseries, their bathrooms or even their laundry room, moms and dads are looking for gentle alternatives for their bundles of joy,” Dreft brand manager Mike Frey said. “As a trusted brand by families for more than 80 years, we’re excited to add Dreft purtouch to our product line-up to provide those parents who are seeking natural-based products with another baby detergent option. We’re proud to provide them with a gentle 65% plant-based baby detergent that uses renewable materials without sacrificing an effective clean. It’s the next step in our mission to design the best possible detergent for baby while thinking of their future world.”

Dreft says the new formula can help remove 99% of baby stains, and also is recommended by pediatricians for a first wash of new clothes for babies. Dreft purtouch is available in 40- and 75-oz. bottles in one-stop retailers, online stores and baby specialty stores.

POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — Fruth Pharmacy announced the babies chosen to represent the company for 2017 as a Mister and Miss Fruth: Allison Egnor of Winfield, W.Va., daughter of Amanda Egnor; Leland Fugett of Parkersburg, W.Va., son of Mark & Christina Fugett; Cooper Wright of Nelsonville, Ohio, son of Tiffani Deffenbaugh and Josh Wright; and Novaleigh Taylor of Buffalo, W.Va., daughter of Tabitha Taylor.

In an effort to help local baby charities, Fruth Pharmacy hosted an event looking for four babies to be the “baby face” for the company’s advertising. To participate in the event, children had to be 0-36 months of age. There were 166 entrants across the Fruth regional pharmacy chain this year.

Fruth customers helped to collect over $7,000 for local baby charities by participating in the baby event and by making donations in-store.

Each Mister and Miss Fruth will receive a photo package valued at $250. Photos will be featured periodically throughout the year in the company’s circular, Facebook, email, and other marketing items.

Fruth Pharmacy has been a family-owned company for over 64 years. Currently, Fruth Pharmacy has 30 locations in West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky.
