The four-week fundraising campaign has started and runs through October 14 at over 1,180 Shoppers Drug Mart stores, will harvest essential funding to directly support the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation fetal monitor campaign.
“Community fundraising initiatives allow us to provide women with the resources they need to improve their health in mind, body and spirit,” said Keith Kerekes, pharmacist owner of Shoppers Drug Mart in Nelson. “We encourage everyone to get involved in women’s health and support the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation campaign.”
Each fall, the campaign provides customers with the opportunity to purchase and personalize a Tree of Life icon, which are prominently displayed on the Tree of Life in all participating stores. Make a difference and support women in communities across Canada by visiting any local participating Shoppers Drug Mart store and purchase a leaf for a loonie, a butterfly for $5 or a cardinal for $50.
