A program through Rite-Aid is helping local non-profits.

Sarah Capretta, health and wellness coordinator for Galion’s Rite Aid store, said the Rite Aid KidCents program is now available for local residents to participate in.

“To donate money, you tell the cashier to round up your total and that extra change goes to the non-profit of your choice (that are participating in the KidCents program),” said Capretta during the Galion Area Betterment Commission meeting on Monday.

Capretta, who is also a member of the Galion City Council, said that organizations wishing to participate can sign up.

“There is a process they must go through to determine if they are eligible. Only non-profit, 501 (c)3s are eligible to receive funding through the program and they must, in some way, help with the health and wellness of children,” Capretta said.

Capretta said she will be speaking with the administration at Sara Beagle Day Care Center, a local non-profit that may be eligible for the program.

“Customers that wish to donate can sign up online and choose which non-profit they want their donation to go to,” Capretta said.

Rite Aid in Galion is located at 304 Harding Way W.
