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."

CVS/pharmacy customers who have been displaced by the fires and are unable to access their local CVS may visit any other CVS/pharmacy location to have their prescription filled quickly and conveniently. CVS has 380 stores in the State of California, including 50 locations in the San Diego market. Customers may call 1-800-SHOP-CVS toll-free 24 hours a day to find a nearby CVS location.
