Chattering Children Receives $1,200 CVS Caremark Community Grant
Donation to Chattering Children is part of CVS Caremark Community Grants Commitment to supporting Children with Disabilities
Washington, DC – Chattering Children has received a $1,200 CVS Caremark Community Grant. Chattering Children’s mission is closely aligned with CVS Caremark All Kids Can, the company’s signature philanthropic program focused on supporting children with disabilities. The grant from CVS Caremark will support Chattering Children’s loaner hearing aid program.
“We are committed to making a positive impact in the communities where we live and work and the CVS Caremark Community grants program does just that by supporting organizations that provide access to health care to those who otherwise could not obtain it,” said Randy Martinez, Manager, Community Relations of CVS Caremark Corporation. “We are proud to support the work that Chattering Children does in the community and we look forward to working with them in the year ahead.”
Chattering Children was selected to receive a grant through the CVS Caremark Community Grants 2011 application process. Grants were awarded to organizations that share a common vision with CVS Caremark’s All Kids Can program, which strives to make life easier for children with disabilities. The goal of the All Kids Can program is to create more inclusive environments for children with and without disabilities to build self-esteem, lasting friendships and social skills, and to help children without disabilities learn diversity and tolerance.
All Kids Can, a program of the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust and CVS Caremark, is a five-year, $25 million commitment to support children with disabilities. The goals of All Kids Can are to support children with disabilities by raising awareness in schools and in local communities about the importance of inclusion, creating greater opportunities for physical activity and play, and providing access to medical rehabilitation and related services. CVS Caremark and its more than 190,000 employees plan to help children with disabilities learn, play and succeed through partnerships with leading local and national nonprofit organizations such as Easter Seals and many others across the country.
