In late October, Hurricane Sandy pounded the East Coast with high winds, heavy rains and rough seas, leaving massive destruction in its wake. Many communities - especially in New York and New Jersey - were devastated by the storm, and are still trying to recover.

Deeply connected to these communities through its CVS/pharmacy stores and charitable partnerships, CVS Caremark has been working to help communities that were overwhelmed by the storm. From setting up mobile pharmacies and temporary stores in order to provide access to important medications and supplies, to establishing a co-pay waiver program for customers in hard hit communities, to providing significant donations to the American Red Cross and local social service organizations – CVS Caremark has provided support to relief efforts since Sandy hit.

To learn more about the challenges faced by some of the hardest hit communities and the support provided by CVS Caremark and its colleagues, please watch the following community-specific videos.
