Based on the success of Walgreens last campaign to support Vitamin Angels, which to date has raised $5.5 million and reached more than 21 million children, the non-profit organization plans to use the forthcoming funds to work with partners in 46 countries, including the U.S. and Canada, to help prevent nutrient deficiency by providing vitamins.

“We are proud to support Vitamin Angels in its journey to provide life-changing vitamins and minerals,” said Robert Tompkins, group vice president, health and wellness, at Walgreens. “The impact that Walgreens and its customers can make to help minimize ailments related to the lack of essential nutrients, will improve millions of peoples’ lives.”
