The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, the private foundation of CVS Caremark, will donate $100,000 to The One Fund Boston, which is also accepting online donations from the public at www.onefundboston.org.

"CVS Caremark has deep roots in New England and a strong presence in Boston. We are deeply saddened by the tragedy at the Boston Marathon and its effect on victims and their family members," said Larry Merlo, President and CEO of CVS Caremark. "We are honored to support The One Fund Boston and assist in the community's recovery from this tragedy."

In addition, beginning Friday, April 19, more than 250 CVS/pharmacy ® stores in the Greater Boston area will hold an in-store donation campaign for the The One Fund Boston that will allow customers to make a donation directly to the Fund at store checkout and pharmacy counters. CVS/pharmacy will encourage customers to add $1, $3 or an amount of the customer's choice to their purchase at the register.     

"We have stores only blocks away from the Boston Marathon finish line, so we know how strongly this tragedy has affected our local customers and employees and that there is a strong desire to help," said Mark Cosby, President of CVS/pharmacy. "We wanted to make it easy for our customers to support One Fund Boston by bringing an in-store donation campaign directly to the Boston community."

The CVS/pharmacy in-store donation campaign for The One Fund Boston will run until Saturday, May 4.
