Rite Aid Foundation Donates $50,000 to American Red Cross to Assist With Wildfire Relief Efforts in Northern California


The Rite Aid Foundation announced today a $50,000 donation to the
American Red Cross to help the victims, families and communities in
Northern California affected by the devastating wildfires.

"Spanning nearly 300,000 acres and showing no sign of containment, the
Northern California wildfires have officially been designated the worst
in state history," said Tracy Henderson, director of The Rite Aid
Foundation and charitable giving initiatives. "While the full effect of
the wildfires is not known today, it's clear that the need will be
great. The Rite Aid Foundation is proud to support the American Red
Cross in its efforts to help the people and communities most affected."

"Thanks to the generosity of The Rite Aid Foundation, the Red Cross is
able to shelter, feed and provide emotional support to the people
affected by the California wildfires as they work to rebuild their
lives," said Elizabeth Penniman, vice president of communications at the
American Red Cross.

Since its inception in 2001, The Rite Aid Foundation has awarded nearly
$39 million to non-profit organizations. Additionally, Rite Aid, through
the efforts of its customers, supplier partners and associates, has also
raised $87 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the
country since 1994.

Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE:RAD) is one of the nation's leading
drugstore chains with fiscal 2018 annual revenues of $21.5 billion.
