When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, families struggle with an ever-growing list of needs, costs, and priorities. Whether it is covering basic living expenses in addition to the mounting costs of medical treatment or keeping their child happy and comfortable, parents and caregivers require a variety of support. Thanks to support from the Rite Aid Foundation’s KidCents program, the Children’s Cancer Association (CCA) was able to continue providing this essential support through our Link program.
CCA purchased gift cards for parents and families to use to respond to the ever-changing needs faced by their families. Examples of these services include:
• Purchasing groceries to keep family members safe and healthy
• Gas and Uber gift cards to enable families to transport their child to & from treatment
• Lego, iTunes, and other entertainment gift cards to keep kids engaged and uplifted during their treatment
RiteAid’s commitment to improving the health and well-being of its communities has truly had an incredible impact on CCA-served kids and families. Thank you for connecting families to the power of joy when they need it most!
