Rite Aid Raises More Than $613,000 For The United Way Of The Capital Region

Rite Aid announced today that associates in its corporate offices located throughout the greater Harrisburg area raised $613,555 during its 2013 fundraising campaign for the United Way of the Capital Region. Rite Aid is one of the largest supporters and has raised more than $6.4 million for the United Way of the Capital Region since it began holding a corporate campaign in 2002.

At a reception marking the end of the campaign Jan. 16, the United Way of the Capital Region (UWCR) announced that it raised more than $11.8 million during its 2013 campaign. At the reception, Rite Aid was once again named to the Pillar Society, which recognizes organizations that contribute at least $100,000 in combined corporate and employee giving and was also one of three companies to receive the inaugural $500,000 Club Award for its level of giving.

“Rite Aid associates in the corporate offices have long supported the United Way of the Capital Region and I know I speak for the entire team when I say we are proud to partner with them in their efforts to assist and improve the lives of those in our community,” said Ken Martindale, Rite Aid president and chief operating officer and president of The Rite Aid Foundation. “Our 2013 campaign, which included a $20,000 increase over the prior year’s campaign, truly highlights the passion of our team and our commitment to being a caring neighbor.”

Rite Aid’s associate giving campaign kicked off on Sept. 24. The company also raised money during its 2013 campaign through a silent online auction, a departmental basket challenge and a series of pancake breakfasts and pizza parties across its corporate offices.

“Each year, the United Way of the Capital Region makes a profound impact in the lives of many by addressing specific needs and providing critical resources to partner agencies in Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties, but that wouldn’t be possible without the support of companies like Rite Aid,” said Timothy B. Fatzinger, United Way of the Capital Region president and CEO. “It’s clear that Rite Aid associates share our mission and are dedicated to making a difference, and we’re so thankful for their generous support.”
