"Since Hurricane Sandy brought its devastation to New Jersey almost three months ago, we have been working tirelessly to rebuild our local communities and make them stronger than ever before," said New Jersey First Lady Mary Pat Christie. "The generous support we are receiving from the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust will help us fund much-needed programs that will help the people of our state get back on their feet and restore hope in our communities."

The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund's priority is to work with community-based non-profit organizations to ensure funds address needs not met by FEMA, insurance and immediate disaster response organizations. Allocations from the Fund will be made in stages, allowing for qualifying organizations to assess their changing needs as the recovery process continues.

The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund supports health care-related initiatives such as mental health services as well as financial counseling and assistance for those who have lost homes and jobs.

"We know that many of the people we serve in New Jersey continue to struggle in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, and we share Governor and Mrs. Christie's dedication to rebuilding affected communities" said Eileen Howard Boone, President, CVS Caremark Charitable Trust.  "As a pharmacy health care provider, we are committed to providing assistance where it's needed most and support the mission of the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund to provide support to programs that address the unmet needs of communities throughout New Jersey."

To date, the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust and CVS/pharmacy have provided more than $200,000 in support of Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, including support to the Red Cross, Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund and Jewish Family Services of Atlantic County. In addition, CVS/pharmacy continues to operate a mobile pharmacy in Margate City, NJ, at the site of its closed store at 9301 Ventnor Avenue in Margate City, NJ, to ensure that affected communities continue to have access to their prescribed medications.
