Donation to Help Member Families, Including Rite Aid Associates, Affected by Hurricane Sandy

Camp Hill, Pa. – The Rite Aid Foundation announced today it was making a donation of food items valued at $15,000 to the 1199SEIU Child Care Corporation. Items including pasta, soup, sauces, instant coffee, tea and other non-perishable food items will be delivered to the union's warehouse in North Bergen, N.J., where they will then be distributed to member families affected by Hurricane Sandy. Rite Aid and 1199SEIU officials will receive the delivery at the warehouse on Friday, December 28 at 11a.m.

Ken Martindale, Rite Aid chief operating officer and president of The Rite Aid Foundation, explained, 'For the past two months, the people and communities affected by Hurricane Sandy have been focused on rebuilding. We know there is still much to be done and that's why The Rite Aid Foundation is proud to make this donation to the 1199SEIU Child Care Corporation as it continues to provide much-needed relief to its members, including many of our associates, in their time of the need.'

The 1199SEIU Child Care Corporation helps unionized healthcare workers represented by 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East balance family and work responsibilities through affordable child care, youth and educational programs.

"We are extremely grateful to The Rite Aid Foundation for this act of generosity, as our members continue to recover from Hurricane Sandy during this holiday season,' said Maria Castaneda, Secretary-Treasurer, 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East. 'The Rite Aid Foundation's steadfast commitment to the region will go a long way towards helping the metropolitan area rebuild in the storm's wake."

More than 6,000 Rite Aid associates at 335 stores in New Jersey and New York are represented by 1199SEIU.

In October, The Rite Foundation donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, along with several truckloads of water, personal care and cleaning supplies to the most affected areas. Last month, The Rite Aid Foundation also pledged an additional $50,000 to both the Empire State Relief Fund and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund to support the rebuilding efforts of the communities affected by the storm.

The Rite Aid Foundation, founded in July 2001, is a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to helping people in the communities Rite Aid serves. Since its inception, The Rite Aid Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $14.3 million to approximately 1250 organizations in 629 communities.
