Rite Aid Campaign Supports Kids at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital

This year, more than ever, kids in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho need your help. Rite Aid customers can help kids treated at our hospital July 12-August 8. Kids like Levi Kimberling. He spent 51 days on ECMO. Hospital officials said that’s longer than any other child at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital. Levi also broke international records in his age group for the length of treatment. The ECMO Machine that saved Levi’s life, was purchased with money raised through Children’s Miracle Network partners like Rite Aid.

As part of a four-week, nationwide campaign among all 2,400 Rite Aid locations, customers can add a donation to their in-store transactions or donate via social media. Contributions will fund urgent treatments, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.Rite Aid has raised more than $447,000 for pediatric patients treated at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital since 1998. These funds will help families impacted by these extraordinary times we’ve been through this year.

“The ripple effects of COVID-19 have affected 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, interim president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “All dollars Rite Aid customers, associates and supplier partners raise truly changes kids’ health and changes their future in every community our member hospitals serve.”

At Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital, we know that kids can’t wait for a cure or for a vaccine. And the need for charitable care is greater than ever. Funds raised in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho will help ensure that kids don’t wait for their personal healthcare needs to be addressed.

You can help change kids’ health and change their future.
