Area Rite Aids raising funds for Children’s Hospital

riteaid-logoChattanooga, Tenn. – Beginning April 6, Rite Aid associates in 17 area stores will invite customers to purchase a $1 paper Miracle Balloon that will directly benefit Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, a Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospital.

Customers who purchase a Miracle Balloon will receive $9 in coupon offers good for a variety of popular products sold at Rite Aid. Miracle Balloons will be available in all Rite Aid stores nationwide through May 24.

“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.”

“Chattanooga area Rite Aid stores demonstrated a strong commitment to children in our community by raising approximately $5,000 for Children’s Hospital during last year’s spring campaign and aim to raise at least that much this year,” said Rebecca Brinkley, Children’s Hospital CMN Hospitals representative.

All donations raised by Rite Aid stay local, benefiting 95 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the communities Rite Aid serves, including Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals use the money raised by Rite Aid to provide critical care, purchase life-saving equipment, fund ground-breaking research and cover medical costs for uninsured or underinsured pediatric patients.
