Now through Saturday, May 24, Rite Aid associates at 32 stores in Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana, and Mercer Counties will invite customers to purchase a $1 paper Miracle Balloon that will directly benefit Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley through the company’s Children’s Miracle Network campaign. In exchange, customers who make a donation will receive $9 in coupon offers good for a variety of popular products sold at Rite Aid.
In addition to the balloon campaign, associates at many Rite Aid locations also conduct special fundraisers throughout the year, including motorcycle rides, bake sales and basket raffles. In 2013, local Rite Aid locations raised more than $38,000 to support the local programs and services of Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley.
“Last year, our company raised a record-breaking $6.8 million for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the communities we serve,” said Ken Martindale, Rite Aid president, chief operating officer and president of The Rite Aid Foundation. “Everyone at Rite Aid is extremely proud of our 20 year partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and I look forward to seeing our associates do all that they can to ensure our 20th campaign is one to remember.”
Rite Aid is celebrating 20 years of miracles and $64 million in funds raised since becoming a partner with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in 1994. The money raised by Rite Aid funds critical care, ground-breaking research and life-saving equipment at 95 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in communities served by Rite Aid.
