KidCents Making An Impact For Local Kids

What’s better than Thrifty Ice Cream from Rite Aid? How about when that tasty treat helps heal local sick kiddos!!!

Who else besides rounds up their change automatically with KidCents at Rite Aid? Well, we just found out that all those donations during the CMN campaign were also added to the total raised for the Lauren Small Children’s Center at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital on top of the $25,000 grant we also received because the Rite Aid on Olive Drive finished #1 IN THE NATION for fundraising!

Sooooooo, altogether, the 21 Kern County Rite Aid stores raised $87,779.84 in 2020…that’s a 221% increase over 2019…during a pandemic people…just incredible!!!

Our community is so generous and amazing!!!
