“Without support from organizations such as The Rite Aid Foundation, we would not be able to offer programs like our summer camp, which is specifically designed to support the medical needs of our campers without sacrificing the fun that regular summer camp offers,” said Jamie Edwards, Grant Manager of Camp Korey. “We are so thankful for this grant, which will allow children to attend and enjoy summer camp, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.”
Rite Aid operates 138 stores throughout Washington.
