"In today's economic climate it's more important than ever to support organizations that can have a positive impact on children with disabilities and their families," said Eileen Howard Dunn, Vice President of CVS Caremark Charitable Trust. "The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust selected these grant recipients because they align with our mission to promote inclusion, increase access to medical therapies and improve academic performance of children with disabilities."

For the past three years, CVS Caremark Charitable Trust grants have centered on children with disabilities aligning with the company's All Kids Can program. CVS Caremark All Kids Can is a five-year $25 million pledge to support children with disabilities by raising awareness in schools and in local communities about the importance of inclusion, creating greater opportunities for physical activity and play, and providing access to medical rehabilitation and related services.

Children with special needs face a broad array of physical, mental and societal challenges each day. According to recent analysis, it is estimated that All Kids Can has had a positive direct impact on nearly 250,000 children with disabilities.
