The Rite Aid Foundation recently made a $250,000 donation to support nine Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funds, divided evenly between hospitals, will allow each children’s hospital to direct the money to the areas of greatest need for their vulnerable patients being treated in their communities.

Beaumont Health recently launched the nation’s largest serological testing study for COVID-19 antibodies.

Matt DeCamara, Executive Director of The Rite Aid Foundation, explains, “These are extraordinary times, and the efforts of CMN Hospitals to support healthcare providers and affected patients is very important and impressive. Across the country, children’s hospitals have found themselves joining the frontlines of this pandemic, offering everything from needed beds to valuable medical equipment. As a longstanding partner, The Rite Aid Foundation is proud to stand with CMN Hospitals during a time when collaboration and partnership mean more than ever.”
