WOONSOCKET, R.I. CVS Caremark said Tuesday it has been recognized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Business Civic Leadership Center for its partnership with Boundless Playgrounds to build inclusive playgrounds for children of all abilities throughout the country.
The Partnership Award is part of BCLC’s annual Corporate Citizenship Awards showcasing businesses, trade associations, and chambers of commerce for demonstrating ethical leadership and corporate stewardship and for making a positive difference in society.
The BCLC selected CVS Caremark as a Partnership Award finalist for the retailer's four-year relationship with Boundless Playgrounds to bring more inclusive playgrounds to communities across the country. CVS Caremark's signature giving program, All Kids Can, has so far donated nearly $4 million dollars to Boundless Playgrounds.
CVS Caremark employees have also contributed to the planning and/or construction of more than 50 Boundless playgrounds across the country.
The winner of the 2009 Partnership Award will be determined by online public vote.
