Through CVS Caremark All Kids Can™, CVS Caremark and its private foundation are supporting programs and services in local communities to assure that children with disabilities learn, play and succeed in life; to provide health and medical rehabilitation services; to foster a heightened level of inclusion in schools, extracurricular programs and other areas of life; to build barrier-free play areas so children of all abilities can play side-by-side; and to create opportunities which deliver greater access to recreation and play.

Easterseals is honored to be selected as one of three national nonprofit partners in the CVS Caremark All Kids Can™ Program.
