CVS Pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Health, is hoping to spread happiness during this time of social distancing.

The company announced it is donating more than $5 million worth of seasonal treats to local community organizations across the country to help families celebrate upcoming holidays, including Easter.

Earlier this month, CVS also began surprising home prescription delivery and drive-through customers with free spring-themed greeting cards.

Field leaders and managers at CVS Pharmacy stores will select local organizations to receive donations, focusing on hospitals, food banks, senior centers, youth programs and other critical resources.

“Many won’t be partaking in their usual holiday celebrations with family and friends,” said George Coleman, CVS Health senior vice president of merchandising. “We hope this small gesture will help put a smile on people’s faces.”

CVS Pharmacy stores remain open to ensure customers and patients have access to critical pharmacy and health services, as well as everyday health-and-wellness needs and groceries. Customers are encouraged to follow social distancing guidelines and take advantage of the drive-through and free delivery options. To locate a nearby CVS Pharmacy location or confirm store hours, click here.
