CVS/pharmacy has also established an emergency prescription delivery service to Qualcomm Stadium and will today deliver a 7-day supply of prescription medication to approximately 300 evacuees identified by on-site medical personnel. Several CVS pharmacy staff members have also been volunteering their time to provide assistance at the shelter.

In addition, CVS/pharmacy is providing more than 9,200 ExtraCare Relief Kits, which contain almost two dozen personal care items, to the American Red Cross for distribution to other shelters that have been established in San Diego. Over the past three days, CVS/pharmacy has also donated several pallets of water to firefighter command posts in the area and will continue to do so.

"We will continue to stay in touch with relief officials and provide any additional assistance that is needed."
