Donation aids Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region

Monday, January 1, 2018

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region received a special holiday gift this year in the form of $5,000 donation from the Rite Aid KidsCents Holiday Wishes program.

Tracy Henderson, director of the Rite-Aid Foundation and charitable giving initiative, said while the KidsCents program has been around for awhile, the Holiday Wishes program is new.

“The Holiday Wishes program is in addition to the charitable giving Rite Aid does through the KidsCents program at other times of the year,” Henderson told the Telegram. “The Holiday Wishes programs allows us to grant wishes of these charitable organizations and recognize the great work they are doing.”

Henderson said the organizations that benefit from the program are all known for their efforts toward improving childhood health and well-being.

This includes the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region, which received $5,000 through the KidsCents program in January and another $5,000 recently through the Holiday Wishes program, Henderson said. Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region, which provides after-school programming to thousands of kids ages 5-18 at three separate locations in the Twin Counties, plans to use the money to fulfill its holiday wish of replacing insulation that was damaged by Hurricane Matthew last year.

The Boys and Girls Club is one of 440 organizations that will benefit from the Holiday Wishes program this year. The Rite Aid Foundation is awarding $5,000 to each organization for a total of $2.2 million to help make a holiday wishes come true.

“The Rite Aid Foundation wanted to give our KidCents charities a special gift this holiday season in recognition of all they do to give the children they serve a chance for better lives and brighter futures,” said Tracy Henderson, director of the Rite Aid Foundation and charitable giving initiatives. “Our KidCents Holiday Wishes program captures the true spirit of the holiday season and is the perfect way to thank our partner charities for all they do throughout the year to make a difference in the lives of children in our communities.”

The KidCents charities were asked to pick the wish they felt would have the most impact for those they serve, according to a press release from the organization.

KidCents was developed by The Rite Aid Foundation to provide Rite Aid customers an opportunity to do more to help the kids in the communities Rite Aid serves. Through KidCents, members of Rite Aid's Wellness+ with Plenti program can round up their in-store or online purchases to the nearest dollar and give their change to the KidCents program. This money can be designated for a particlular participating organization, such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Tar River Region, Henderson said.
