CVS Caremark is working with the Red Cross to establish a dedicated online donation portal for any of its approximately 200,000 employees who want to contribute. The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust will match employee donations up to $100,000.

"With the impact of this terrible event still occurring and given the potential for serious long-term health challenges across northeastern Japan, we are providing support to the American Red Cross as it helps the Japanese Red Cross provide first aid, emotional support and relief items to those who have been displaced," said Eileen Howard Boone, Vice President, CVS Caremark Charitable Trust.

"This contribution from the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust is critically important as we work to provide help and hope to survivors of the Japan earthquake and Pacific tsunami," said Michael J. Brown, Vice President of Corporate and Foundation Giving at the American Red Cross. "In times of disaster, assistance from our corporate partners is key to our ability to fulfill our humanitarian mission."
