Today is the 2nd annual #GivingTuesday, a national campaign created to spark a day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season, following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It celebrates charities, individuals, schools, businesses and other community organizations who come together to support charitable causes, and encourages everyone to participate in a national day dedicated to giving back. #GivingTuesday aligns with the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust and its mission to make a positive impact in the lives of people by investing in local communities.

"Through our #GivingTuesday initiative, we are not only providing deserving non-profit organizations with funding, but we are honoring our colleagues who bring our values of caring and collaboration to life all year long by volunteering with organizations that are helping the people we serve, every day.”
