The staff of Shoppers Drug Mart once again raised money for the Lois Hole Foundation through Run for Women, a fundraising campaign designed to support women’s mental health programs. After participating virtually last year due to COVID restrictions, this year the staff were able to gather as a group and do the 5km run/walk along with their families. Beginning April 10, the fundraising kicked off with a snack basket draw and a staff bottle drive. For $2 customers could enter into a draw for a snack basket and at the same time have their name put on a shoe icon in the store’s front window showing their support. The combination of the three efforts resulted in the store raising $1800 this year for the cause, something Store Front Manager Janice Hoffman is very proud of, “the staff were awesome and as always a great support for this cause. Events like this enhance our Shopper’s family strengths.” On July 6, the store drew Gail Tupper’s name as the winner of the snack basket.
