Rite Aid Foundation donates $150K to California fire relief orgs

By David Salazar - 11/16/2018
The Rite Aid Foundation is pitching in to help those affected by the Camp, Woolsey and Hill wildfires in California. The organization will be donating $150,000 to various organizations helping with the relief efforts.

The American Red Cross in the Gold Country and Los Angeles regions will each receive $40,000, the North Valley Community Foundation will receive $35,000 and the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation will receive $35,000. The Red Cross has been offering food and shelter to displaced residents, the North Valley Community Foundation has established the Camp Fire Evacuation Relief Fund to support those affected and the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation has offered hydration backpacks to firefighters.

“These devastating fires have left absolute destruction and heartbreak across California. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected as well as the brave firefighters who have been tirelessly battling these infernos,” said Kermit Crawford, Rite Aid president and chief operating officer and president of The Rite Aid Foundation. “The Rite Aid Foundation hopes today’s donations provide hope, relief and support as families and residents begin to recover and rebuild their lives.”
