CVS Health has been a committed partner to the American Lung Association, helping us address the most pressing lung health issues. This year is no different, as CVS Health is stepping up to support our COVID-19 Action Initiative, a $25M investment to end COVID-19 and prevent future respiratory pandemics. From June 14 – July 11, CVS Pharmacy is inviting customers to donate $1, $3 or more at the register* to help save more lives affected by COVID-19. Customers are also able to donate online and get involved in our initiative at Lung.org/CVS.
National Presenting Sponsor
For years, we have worked with CVS Health to raise awareness about the serious threat of lung cancer. In 2014, CVS Health became the first national pharmacy retailer to remove tobacco from their stores, part of their commitment to promote better health and became the National Presenting Sponsor of LUNG FORCE, our initiative to defeat lung cancer.
Through this partnership, CVS Health supported LUNG FORCE with an annual in-store fundraising campaign and through active participation in LUNG FORCE Walks, local leadership boards and more to help raise awareness and funds for the initiative. We have also partnered with CVS Health on several programs that allow smokers in select communities free access to our proven-effective Freedom From Smoking® program. Support for these partnerships is provided through Be The First, CVS Health's five-year, $50 million initiative to help deliver the nation's first tobacco-free generation and extend the company's larger commitment to helping people lead tobacco-free lives.
