"Since Hurricane Sandy brought its devastation to New Jersey almost three
months ago, we have been working tirelessly to rebuild our local communities
and make them stronger than ever before," said New Jersey First Lady Mary Pat
Christie. "The generous support we are receiving from the CVS Caremark
Charitable Trust will help us fund much-needed programs that will help the
people of our state get back on their feet and restore hope in our
communities."

The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund's priority is to work with
community-based non-profit organizations to ensure funds address needs not met
by FEMA, insurance and immediate disaster response organizations. Allocations
from the Fund will be made in stages, allowing for qualifying organizations to
assess their changing needs as the recovery process continues.

The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund supports health care-related
initiatives such as mental health services as well as financial counseling and
assistance for those who have lost homes and jobs.

"We know that many of the people we serve in New Jersey continue to struggle
in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, and we share Governor and Mrs. Christie's
dedication to rebuilding affected communities" said Eileen Howard Boone,
President, CVS Caremark Charitable Trust.  "As a pharmacy health care
provider, we are committed to providing assistance where it's needed most and
support the mission of the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund to provide
support to programs that address the unmet needs of communities throughout New
Jersey."

To date, the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust and CVS/pharmacy have provided more
than $200,000 in support of Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, including support
to the Red Cross, Rebuild Hoboken Relief Fund and Jewish Family Services of
Atlantic County. In addition, CVS/pharmacy continues to operate a mobile
pharmacy in Margate City, NJ, at the site of its closed store at 9301 Ventnor
Avenue in Margate City, NJ, to ensure that affected communities continue to
have access to their prescribed medications.
