Shoppers Drug Mart puts women’s health first

Shoppers Drug Mart stores in Orillia are putting women’s health first through their annual Growing Women’s Health Campaign. They have donated $7,611 in support of women’s health at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH).

The donation will go towards the addition of Tomosynthesis technology to the Hospital’s recently acquired digital mammography machine, which allows for 3-dimensional breast cancer screening.

“The continuous support of Shoppers Drug Mart stores in Orillia really paves the way for first class women’s health care in our community,” said Nicole Kraftscik, Major Gifts Officer, OSMH Foundation. “Their total lifetime giving towards women’s health at OSMH now amounts to over $60,000.”

During the month-long campaign, customers of local Shoppers Drug Mart stores were given the opportunity to purchase and personalize their own paper “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 were prominently displayed on the Growing Women’s Health Tree in all participating stores.

“I would also like to thank the community for coming out and supporting this amazing campaign year after year. You truly make all the difference,” Kraftscik adds.
