CAMP HILL, Pa. Rite Aid on Wednesday announced that the Rite Aid Foundation is making a $10,000 donation to the American Red Cross to help the victims, families and communities affected by the floods in Mingo and surrounding counties in the western section of West Virginia.

“Our hearts go out to the victims, families and communities affected by these devastating floods,” stated Gayle Rife, manger of the Rite Aid Foundation. “We are hoping that our donation can help make it just a little easier for those who have been impacted the most.”

"The West Virginia spirit truly comes alive when the worst things happen to our fellow citizens," commented W.V. Gov. Joe Manchin. "We all pitch in when disaster strikes and help our neighbors to recover. I commend Rite Aid for being a good corporate citizen and helping the American Red Cross with its efforts to get the flood victims of southern West Virginia back on their feet. I challenge other corporations that are financially able, to donate and help those who need it the most."
