“The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, the private foundation created by CVS Caremark Corporation, whose purpose is to help people on their path to better health by providing funding for initiatives that support access to health care and children’s programming, today announced that it has donated $50,000 grants to Hartford Hospital in 2012. Hartford Hospital is the major teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Connecticut Medical School, serving the New England region. This support is part of $2.6 million in grants awarded to 66 non-profit organizations across the country as part of the 2012 CVS Caremark Charitable Trust grant cycle.
CVS Caremark Charitable Trust grants awarded in Connecticut support innovative approaches that increase access to health care for underserved populations, including support for mobile health innovations that bring health care services to locations where people need them most. A number of these grants also align with CVS Caremark All Kids Can, a signature program of the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust and CVS Caremark, that is committed to helping children of all abilities to be the best that they can be by increasing access to specialized medical and rehabilitation services, and providing inclusive opportunities for physical activity, play and social enrichment.
“We are thrilled to support deserving non-profit organizations that share our commitment to helping people on their path to better health,” said Eileen Howard Boone, President, CVS Caremark Charitable Trust. “As we strive to build healthier communities in 2013, we are honored to recognize the efforts of organizations in Connecticut and the important work they do to make a difference in the lives of children and families in the communities we serve.”
