"Many of our communities on the East Coast were affected by Hurricane Sandy," said Eileen Howard Boone, Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications and Community Relations for CVS Caremark.  "We are deeply concerned about the impact this storm has had on our customers and colleagues, and we are committed to supporting relief efforts and assisting first-responders, including our partners at the American Red Cross, in any way we can."

CVS Caremark is also supporting its employees who have been affected by the hurricane through the CVS Caremark Employee Relief Fund.  Launched in 2011, the Employee Relief Fund provides short-term, immediate financial relief to employees who've suffered significant hardship as a result of a natural disaster, family death, medical emergency or other unforeseen events. 

The American Red Cross is helping people across 13 states with safe shelter, food and comfort as part of a huge disaster response to Sandy. More than 9,000 people spent Tuesday night in 171 Red Cross shelters, and workers have served more than 100,800 meals and snacks. The organization has deployed more than 2,300 disaster workers from all over the country. Nearly 200 response vehicles have also been deployed and are beginning to circulate through communities distributing meals, water and snacks.
