Walgreens Boots Alliance has reached over 250 million women and children around the world with life-changing vitamins and minerals through its partnership with Vitamin Angels.
Since 2013, Walgreens and Vitamin Angels have worked together to provide life-changing vitamins and minerals to undernourished children and expectant mothers in the U.S. and around the world. Over the last seven years, Walgreens and its suppliers have donated one percent of all vitamin and supplement retail sales to support Vitamin Angels’ outreach efforts to communities in need across the U.S. and globally.
Walgreens Boots Alliance is committed to reaching even more women and children in underserved communities around the world. As of 2020, Walgreens Boots Alliance has extended our partnership globally, and has committed to reach an additional 150 million women and children in the next three years - for a combined total of 400 million lives changed through this partnership!
“With the support of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Vitamin Angels has been able to reach millions of mothers and children under five at risk of malnutrition with life-saving nutrients,” said Howard Schiffer, founder and president of Vitamin Angels. “We are honored to be partnering with an organization that cares so much about children and moms in the U.S. and around the world.” Vitamin Angels thanks the entire Walgreens Boots Alliance team for their incredible commitment and dedication to this partnership. Support from Walgreens Boots Alliance helps make Vitamin Angels’ work possible.
