Through the Growing Women’s Health campaign, Shoppers Drug Marts in Chatham-Kent worked together to help raise over $20 000 for the Chatham-Kent Hospice and their ongoing funding needs. Shoppers Drug Marts in Chatham, Tilbury, Ridgetown, and Wallaceburg stores all donated to the Hospice.

Growing Women’s Health, Shoppers annual campaign, is a four week campaign that runs in the fall, providing customers with the opportunity to donate to a local organization.

Customers can purchase and personalize a “Growing Women’s Health” icon; a leaf for a loonie,a butterfly for $5, an apple for $10 and a bird for $50. The icons are displayed on the Growing Women’s Health Tree in all participating stores with 100 percent of proceeds donated to the local organization.

“This is a great example of how communities across the municipality working together can make a big impact. Each store put a lot of effort into their store’s campaign and we are very grateful.” Said Jodi Maroney, Director of Development for Chatham-Kent Hospice.

Donations to the Hospice are used to cover everything but direct care salaries, this includes utilities, kitchen and program supplies, and any other additional costs.
