St. Mary’s Receives Donation from the RiteAid Foundation

St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children is pleased to announce that it has recently received a generous grant of $5,000 from the Rite Aid Foundation’s “Big Hearts Give Challenge”— which was designed to help KidCents charities raise awareness, grow their donor network and earn funds for their organization. KidCents is RiteAid’s in-store, round up program that supports nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving the health and well-being of children. At every Rite Aid store throughout the country, the KidCents program allows customers to support their favorite local charity by rounding-up their change. St. Mary’s has been a proud participant in the KidCents program since 2014.

To participate and support St. Mary’s Kids, Rite Aid customers can sign into their wellness+ with Plenti account at and select St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children as their charity of choice. After the initial sign-up, the next time the customer shops at Rite Aid, their purchase will be rounded up to the nearest dollar and their change will be designated to St. Mary’s..

“Our Big Hearts Give Challenge was a fun way for KidCents charities to earn a donation for their organization while raising awareness about the valuable work they are doing and expanding their donor network,” said Ken Martindale, Rite Aid CEO of stores and President of Rite Aid Corporation.

In total, The Rite Aid Foundation’s KidCents program will donate a total of $1,597,500 to 182 KidCents charities.
