Rite Aid Foundation KidCents Holiday Wishes Grant to help improve a school cafeteria for its students

January 03, 2018

We’re honored and excited to have received a Holiday Wishes grant from Rite Aid Foundation KidCents Program!

As grants are vital to our mission, Crossroads Center for Children is thrilled to announce that we have received a $5,000 grant from the Rite Aid Foundation KidCents Program in support of the KidCents Holiday Wishes initiative. This grant will help our school environment immensely.

Crossroads Center for Children has been a KidCents charity for four years and has been a beneficiary of the Rite Aid Foundation’s generosity on several occasions. Crossroads is grateful to have received this grant and plans to use these funds to make a holiday wish come true – improving the environment of the students’ cafeteria by purchasing school cafeteria tables and dividers. These items were part of the space in the previous building that housed Crossroads, but nearly 10 years ago were lost in a water-main break that forced the school to relocate. Since then, funding priorities have not allowed for the replacement of these items, until now through Holiday Wishes.  

The Rite Aid Foundation KidCents Program was recognized at Crossroads Center for Children’s annual gala in April, 2017 with a Connecting the Community award. The KidCents Program allows Rite Aid customers to round up their purchases to support the efforts of community organizations such as Crossroads Center for Children. With this grant, Rite Aid aims to recognize Crossroads and other organizations for all they do throughout the year to make a difference in the lives of children in our communities, to support their efforts to improve the health, safety and well-being of children in their community.

Crossroads Center for Children is thrilled to have the help of Rite Aid Foundation KidCents Program for our students. We appreciate the myriad of support that we receive from our community when they contribute to the KidCents Program.
