Minding Your Mind is one of nearly 500 partner charities across the country receiving a Giving Tuesday grant from The Rite Aid Foundation. The grants are funded through the KidCents customer fundraising program. Rite Aid customers enrolled in KidCents can round up their purchases in-store and online (see below to learn how to select Minding Your Mind as your KidCents charity).
The Rite Aid Foundation reinvests the customer contributions into local charities and missions to drive community change and support disadvantaged and underserved communities. This year’s total foundation grant allocation was $4.8 million.
“Minding Your Mind shares The Rite Aid Foundation’s caring commitment to creating healthier and more equitable neighborhoods,” said Matthew DeCamara, executive director of The Rite Aid Foundation, a public charity established by Rite Aid in 2001. “All of our Giving Tuesday grant recipients address the profound realities of racial inequities and health disparities through their own ways and strategies – and have done it during an unprecedented public-health crisis that has significantly interrupted normal programming, fundraising events and daily operations. We’re grateful to support their important work and uplift our neighborhoods together.”
