Shoppers’ ‘Tree of Life’ supports breast health
Trees grow stronger as years pass. The Shoppers Drug Mart Tree of Life fundraiser is no different, thanks to the generosity of local patrons.
The Tree of Life program encourages customers of Lindsay’s two Shoppers Drug Mart locations to buy a leaf ($1), a butterfly ($5), an acorn ($10) or a cardinal ($50).
The decorations are signed by the donor and posted in the store, and 100 per cent of the proceeds are donated to benefit women’s health.
Those who donated to the fundraiser at one of the two Shoppers Drug Mart locations in Lindsay helped support the Tales of Hope Holiday appeal for 3D mammography at RMH.
Today, the owner of Lindsay’s west end Shoppers Drug Mart, Mahvash Moorbakhsh presented a cheque for $2,517.00 to Erin Coons, Executive Director of the RMH Foundation.
“The patrons of Shoppers Drug Mart continue to show us how important the Ross Memorial’s breast screening program is to them,” said Coons. “Their generosity at the register is helping to improve our patients’ diagnosis and treatment. We’re so grateful.”
