Rite Aid Foundation hits the road with its KidCents Mobile Flu Clinic
CAMP HILL, Pa. — The Rite Aid Foundation last week launched its KidCents Mobile Flu Clinic, which will visit KidCents charities in communities served by Rite Aid to provide free flu shots to children served by the charity. Immediate family members as well as the staff and volunteers of the charity will also be able to receive free flu shots.
"Each year, millions of children get sick with the flu, a virus that can be especially tough on children," stated Tracy Henderson, director of The Rite Aid Foundation. "Since a flu shot is the single best way to prevent the flu, we're making it easier than ever for kids and their families to fight the flu by bringing the KidCents Mobile Flu Clinic to town."
The KidCents Mobile Flu Clinic will begin its three-week tour in Pittsburgh and travel across country to Washington and California. In addition to inoculating children against the flu, each of the charities visited by the KidCents Mobile Flu Clinic will receive a $10,000 KidCents grant from The Rite Aid Foundation.
"As a thank you for the great work our KidCents charities are doing in their communities, we wanted to do something meaningful for them," Henderson said. "We hope that this KidCents donation will help them continue doing what they do best, while keeping children safe, happy and healthy through flu season and beyond."
