Healthy and Happy Start for New Families in Philadelphia

When: Thursday, September 27

Where: Philadelphia, PA

The next stop for RA50 was to the Special Delivery Unit of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The first of its kind in the world, the Special Delivery Unit exclusively cares for babies born with a wide range of birth defects, such as spina bifida or congenital heart disease, who need specialized surgery either before or immediately after birth. 

We are proud to help new families start their lives together, making the transition a little easier by delivering 100 RA50 New Family Kits, which include Tugaboo baby products and other necessities, so all mom has to focus on is her newborn.  Rite Aid associates got a special tour of the facility, and were able to hand deliver several New Family Kits to new moms. 

Tuggy the Tugaboo mascot was also there putting smiles on patient’s faces.
