Rite Aid is set to unveil its latest in-store fundraising campaign for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The campaign is set to run Aug. 1 to 29, with customers able to make donations that will benefit 53 local children’s hospitals offering care and services to children in Rite Aid communities.

This year’s campaign marks the 27th year that the Camp Hill, Pa.-based retailer and the Rite Aid Foundation have worked to raise and donate money to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. In total, the company and foundation have raised and donated more than $100 million to the hospitals. 

“The ripple effects of donations impact nearly every aspect of treatment and services for children’s hospitals, and without the help of caring partners like Rite Aid, many may face significant impacts in the short- and long-term,” said Teri Nestel, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Every dollar Rite Aid customers, associates and supplier partners raise truly changes kids’ health and changes the future in every community our member hospitals serve.”

Rite Aid said all donations made during the campaign would stay local and support the children’s hospital in the customer’s community. 

“The impact of every dollar raised goes far beyond hospital walls. When we ensure kids live healthy lives, we help them become the teachers, scientists, artists, inventors and leaders of tomorrow,” said Bill Engen, senior vice president of retail operations for Rite Aid. “Every year we are deeply touched by our customers’ caring commitment to children’s health and look forward to rallying with them to change lives this summer.”
