At Rite Aid, our mission is to improve the health and wellness of our communities through engaging experiences that provide our customers with the best products, services and advice to meet their unique wellness needs.
We live this commitment every day in every community we serve. Beyond our stores, we bring our mission to life through the efforts of The Rite Aid Foundation. Through our long-standing support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other Rite Aid Foundation efforts, we have raised and donated over $165 million for kids.
To make the greatest impact possible, The Rite Aid Foundation focuses on three core areas for charitable giving within our communities:
As a way to do even more in the communities we serve, The Rite Aid Foundation developed KidCents, a program that allows our customers to help children by simply rounding-up their change. By participating in KidCents,
wellness+ rewards members can even designate their change to an approved KidCents charity.
In its last fiscal year, The Rite Aid Foundation supported prescription drug safety education for 13,000 students, funded scholarships for almost 400 children of fallen or injured service members, and provided critical support for children’s hospitals in communities Rite Aid serves.
The Rite Aid Foundation is committed to combatting racism and fostering more diverse, inclusive and equitable opportunities in communities through its Racial Equity Awareness and Action Initiative. We seek to drive meaningful progress and sustainable change during a critical juncture.
