Rite Aid stores raise money for Children's Hospital of Georgia

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Rite Aid stores in the Augusta area will sell $1 paper Miracle Balloons to support the Children's Hospital of Georgia, the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital.

Customers who make a donation will receive $9 in coupon offers, good for a variety of products sold at Rite Aid.

Rite Aid has stores in and around Augusta, including Hephzibah and Millen, as well as in North Augusta, Bamberg and Allendale, S.C.

"All funds raised from these stores during the campaign will benefit the more than 90,000 patients treated each year at Children's Hospital of Georgia," said CHOG Children's Miracle Network Development Coordinator Catherine Stewart. "Since 2010, local Rite Aids have raised almost $25,000 to benefit children in our community, and we are pleased that they will continue to support CMN Hospitals this year."

Rite Aid is celebrating 20 years of miracles and $64 million in funds raised since becoming a partner with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The money raised by Rite Aid funds critical care, ground-breaking research and life-saving equipment at 95 CMN Hospitals, including Children's Hospital of Georgia.
