2015 Donor Newsletter V.2
Longs Drugs, part of the CVS Health family, and the Child & Family Service (CFS) share a common commitment to building healthy communities. Through an innovative new partnership, our two organizations are bringing much-needed supplies to families at CFS domestic violence shelters and other programs.
Over the past year, Longs has donated more than $200,000 worth of Longs products to families participating in CFS Programs. CFS receives store brand items like personal care products that are scheduled to be removed from shelves at twelve stores located on Oahu, Kauai, Kona and Hilo. Guild members and CFS staff pick up the products that include personal care, food and household items and deliver them to CFS offices and programs.
“CVS Health is pleased to partner with Child & Family Service to help families in need across the state of Hawaii,” said Harold Morse, regional manager for CVS Health. “Since we are continuously rotating our store products, this program enables us to manage our supply chain responsibly, while making it possible to get much needed supplies to families and fulfilling CVS Health’s purpose of helping people on their path to better health.”
According to CFS Vice President of Programs, Karen Tan, not only do these contributions support CFS programs, they also create opportunities for CFS to share with other nonprofits that may need supplies, such as health items and other products received in abundance.
“This is a brilliant and generous donation by Longs and CVS Health. They are being put to good use in CFS programs and other nonprofits that we collaborate with,” Tan said. “Partnerships like these have a direct impact on the lives of families for the short term, as we work to help strengthen them for the long term.”
