CVS Caremark Corp. recently reached the $1 million mark in total donations to Children’s Hospital Boston, to benefit children with disabilities. The funds were donated over the course of more than five years through the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust and the CVS Caremark All Kids Can Program.
Eileen Howard Boone, senior vice president of corporate communications and community relations for CVS Caremark, said, “We are incredibly proud of our $1 million milestone and great partnership with the team at Children’s Hospital Boston. Together we are helping children with disabilities learn, play and succeed in all they set out to do.”
CVS Caremark’s donations to Children’s Hospital Boston have supported the hospital’s Center for Communication Enhancement and Cerebral Palsy Program. To celebrate the milestone, CVS Caremark invited 10-year-old Evan Williams, a cerebral palsy patient at the hospital, to throw the ceremonial first pitch at a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park. He also participated in the pre-game check presentation. •
