Walgreens has donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross for Typhoon Haiyan disaster-relief efforts.

The money will be used to distribute relief items, repair and rebuild shelters, provide health care, and give access to clean water and sanitation systems for those impacted by the storm. Thousands were killed by the typhoon that ravished the Philippines last week.

“Thousands of people in the Philippines have been left without basic living needs, so we are supporting the American Red Cross to help bring aid to those who need it the most. Our thoughts go out to all of those impacted by this disaster,” said John Gremer, Walgreens director of community affairs.
