Rite Aid Foundation donates $50K to assist California wildfire relief efforts

BY DSN STAFF

The Rite Aid Foundation announced that it had made a $50,000 donation to the American Red Cross in order to help those affected by the Northern California wildfires.

“Spanning nearly 300,000 acres and showing no sign of containment, the Northern California wildfires have officially been designated the worst in state history,” Tracy Henderson, director of The Rite Aid Foundation and charitable giving initiatives, said. “While the full effect of the wildfires is not known today, it’s clear that the need will be great. The Rite Aid Foundation is proud to support the American Red Cross in its efforts to help the people and communities most affected.”

Since its inception in 2001, the Rite Aid Foundation has awarded nearly $39 million to non-profit organizations and has raised $87 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1994.

“Thanks to the generosity of The Rite Aid Foundation, the Red Cross is able to shelter, feed and provide emotional support to the people affected by the California wildfires as they work to rebuild their lives,” Elizabeth Penniman, vice president of communications at the American Red Cross, said.
