The Rite Aid Foundation Donates $100,000 To The American Red Cross To Assist With Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

Rite Aid (NYSE: RAD) announced today that The Rite Aid Foundation will donate $100,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to help the victims, families and communities affected by Hurricane Sandy. In addition, Rite Aid will work closely with the American Red Cross to assess specific needs for other donations of emergency supplies.

“Our hearts go out to the people and communities affected by Hurricane Sandy,” said Ken Martindale, Rite Aid’s Chief Operating Officer and President of The Rite Aid Foundation. “As they start to rebuild, it’s important that they know they aren’t alone. Rite Aid is proud to partner with the American Red Cross and hope that our donation helps to make the recovery and rebuilding process a little easier.”

“The American Red Cross is grateful for The Rite Aid Foundation’s generous donation as we work to provide both help and hope to the people affected by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy,” said Neal Litvack, chief development officer of the American Red Cross. “The Red Cross is proud to partner with The Rite Aid Foundation and applauds its continued dedication when it comes to helping the communities they serve in their time of need.”

The vast majority of Rite Aid stores in those areas affected by the powerful storm are open and serving the prescription and merchandise needs of the local residents based on circumstances on the ground and direction from local authorities. The company is working closely with local authorities to reopen any of its locations closed due to power outages and storm damage.

The Rite Aid Foundation, founded in July 2001, is a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to helping people in the communities Rite Aid serves. Since its inception, The Rite Aid Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $14.3 million to approximately 1250 organizations in 629 communities.
