$4.5M+ Grant from Rite Aid divided among 42 Children’s Hospitals. $50K to Akron Children’s!

Thank you, Rite Aid! A total of 42 hospitals serving Rite Aid’s 17-state footprint received grants ranging from $25,000 to $300,000 through Healthy Futures’ Connecting Communities signature initiative. The program emphasizes larger markets with acute hunger realities and leading hospitals that are driving care, cures and advancements inside their walls and beyond in the communities they serve. Akron Children’s Hospital is one of the five Children’s Hospitals in Ohio to receive money from this grant. A total of $50,000 was granted to Akron Children’s Hospital and will be dedicated to our Food Insecurities program, which now includes a Food Farmacy and Education & Wellness Garden. With a grateful heart, we thank you!
