BLENHEIM, ON – Tuesday July 30, 2019, representatives from all Shoppers Drug Mart locations in Chatham-Kent presented Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation with a cheque for $4,000. A portion of these funds will be directed towards Chatham-Kent Health Alliance’s existing mental health services, in hopes of improving the services offered to women struggling with mental illnesses. The rest of the donation will be used for the hospital’s highest priority needs.
This donation was a result of the Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Gala fundraiser. This company wide event brings women together for a day of pampering, including skin consultations and makeovers, with all funds donated to support community-based women’s health programs.
“We are always happy to see local businesses taking initiative to improve health care in our community.” says Mary Lou Crowley, President & CEO, Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation. “It is especially great to see the Blenheim, Wallaceburg and Chatham locations working together to maximize their impact. We are very grateful for this generous donation”.
Shoppers will be continuing their charitable efforts and holding another Beauty Mingle event on Saturday, August 10. Tickets are ten dollars, and proceeds will be going towards the Look Good Feel Better program that teaches female cancer patients beauty techniques to combat the appearance related side effects of cancer treatments.
