FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Vancouver, BC - BC Children’s Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce that London Drugs stores in BC have raised over $1 million dollars since 1987 in support of BC Children’s Hospital. Their commitment to pediatric healthcare was honored at an event today.
“London Drugs has generously supported excellence in pediatric healthcare for more than 30 years,” said Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. “We are incredibly grateful for their ongoing support, and would like to thank the staff and the customers of London Drugs for helping us provide the best care for BC’s kids.”
The 51 London Drugs stores in BC have lent their support and fundraised for a number of the Foundation’s campaigns and events, and London Drugs stores dedicate the month of April to fundraising for the hospital. Many of their fundraising initiatives are enthusiastically supported by London Drugs employees and customers, who value organizations that benefit families and youth across the province.
“London Drugs employees and customers are passionate about building healthier and stronger communities, and those communities start with our kids,” said Clint Mahlman, president and COO of London Drugs. “When a child is sick or injured, there is no better place to be than BC Children’s Hospital, and we are proud to raise funds for their most urgent needs.”
