Thanks to the combined efforts of Shoppers Drug Mart, its employees and customers, Creston will now have improved access to services and programming supporting women’s whole health as Shoppers Drug Mart’s 2010 Tree of Life fundraising campaign has raised $1,567 for the Kootenai Community Centre Society’s Irvine House women’s shelter.

With over 1,800 Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix stores across Canada participating in the four-week campaign, the ninth annual Tree of Life campaign will provide support to over 37 Canadian health care-related charities. With more than $13 million raised since 2002, the 2010 Tree of Life campaign will see 100 per cent of the proceeds donated to women’s health organizations, ensuring women have even greater access to services and information they need to stay healthy in mind, body and spirit.

“The success of the 2010 Tree of Life campaign can be attributed to the support and commitment of our loyal customers and staff,” said front store manager Lon Hansen. “Shoppers Drug Mart has partnered with women’s health organizations at national, regional and local levels, in order to provide direct support, ensuring that essential funding, resources and education are available to meet the needs of Canadian women. We are pleased to present this year’s Tree of Life campaign proceeds to the Irvine House women’s shelter.”
