CVS Caremark All Kids Can™, a program of the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust and supported by CVS Caremark, is a five-year, $25 million commitment to making life easier for children with disabilities. Through this signature program, CVS Caremark and the Trust will support nonprofit organizations that provide innovative programs and services in local communities focused on helping children with disabilities learn, play and succeed in life. The goals of All Kids Can are to raise awareness in schools and in local communities about the importance of inclusion; build barrier-free playgrounds so children of all abilities can play side-by-side; and provide medical rehabilitation and related services to children with disabilities. All Kids Can focuses around three key areas of support:
We recognize the importance of providing children with disabilities the opportunity to participate in everyday activities. Our program supports activities that promote the value and importance of inclusion. Through greater awareness of the needs of children with disabilities and support for programs that bring children of all abilities together, All Kids Can will touch the lives of many children.
The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust is committed to supporting organizations that provide safe places for children to play and to be physically active. The Trust will provide grants to help build barrier-free playgrounds in communities nationwide and expand existing recreation areas for children with disabilities.
Medical rehabilitation is critical for many children living with disabilities. CVS Caremark will provide funding for medical rehabilitation and related services for children with disabilities to organizations that provide much-needed services.
The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust focuses primarily on supporting charitable organizations that are making a difference in the lives of children with disabilities. Resources are also allocated to help support organizations focused on providing healthcare to the uninsured. We believe these two areas represent opportunities for the Trust to create positive outcomes for diverse populations of people in communities across the country.
