BY Staff Writer

New York — CVS Caremark has donated $250,000 to the Chicago State University’s College of Pharmacy for the development of the CVS Caremark Student Center and Technology Laboratory.

“This donation will help to improve the College’s physical space and technological resources, which greatly enhances student success within the College of Pharmacy. To say thank you is an understatement,” stated Dean Miriam Mobley Smith with the College of Pharmacy.

“CVS Caremark is pleased to support Chicago State University’s College of Pharmacy and its mission to educate and train new generations of pharmacists,” stated Papatya Tankut, VP pharmacy affairs at CVS Caremark. "The CVS Caremark Student Center and Technology Laboratory will help ensure that students are prepared for success in a rapidly evolving pharmacy industry."

The grant, disbursed over a five-year period, will support pharmacy students by providing:

Integrative learning: This laboratory will provide students with an opportunity for small group hands-on experiences in preparing for and conducting presentations and using new technology in their preparatory efforts;

Development of practical skills to enhance scholarship: The new center will be used to enhance faculty-student engagement. Through this experience students will improve and expand upon their oral, writing, and research skills; and

Social interaction: Students will work together to strengthen intercultural language, values and traditions to foster one-team spirit and objectives.

"This gift will create educational opportunities that will enable our pharmacy students to achieve success as individuals and contributors to the global healthcare community," added CSU president Wayne D. Watson. “We are grateful for the generosity of CVS Caremark, who supports our mission of teaching a diverse community of scholars.”

Jo-Ann donates more than $5M in 2012

BY CSA STAFF

HUDSON, Ohio — Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores announced that in 2012 the company’s year-end corporate giving total surpassed $5 million for the first time in the retailer’s history.

“I am extremely proud of Jo-Ann team members and customers for their contributions in helping Jo-Ann Stores surpass $5 million in charitable giving during 2012,” said Travis Smith, CEO and president of Jo-Ann Stores. “Our corporate vision includes being the best fabric and craft retail brand for our communities, and this milestone is a testament to our commitment to that promise.”

A diverse group of charitable organizations benefitted from Jo-Ann charitable giving initiatives during 2012. Goodwill Industries International, Inc., the primary recipient of merchandise discards at the store level, was the greatest benefactor having received more than $4.8 million over the course of the year.

The Inspired to Help program grants each new Jo-Ann store the opportunity to make a $2,000 donation to a local school and each of the three Jo-Ann Distribution Centers the opportunity to donate $3,000 quarterly to the local non-profit organizations of their choosing. In 2012, a total of $142,000 was donated to various schools and organizations across the country through the Inspired to Help program.

Jo-Ann customers contributed more than $92,000 via in-store coin box donations to the American Heart Association and American Red Cross – more than $46,000 of the total coin box donations was raised for the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy and Other Related Storms Relief Fund over the course of just seven weeks.

Promoting opportunities in education was once again a pillar of Jo-Ann giving efforts in 2012. The Kids in Need Foundation received a $25,000 grant to provide K-12 educators funding to pursue innovative learning opportunities for their students. 2012 was also the inaugural year of the Jo-Ann Stores, Inc. First Generation Scholarship for Fashion Design and Merchandising awarded to a first generation college student enrolled in The Fashion School at Kent State University.
