Shoppers Drug Mart North Battleford is supporting health and wellness for women in The Battlefords by donating to Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation.
In the fall of 2019, Shoppers Drug Mart ran their Tree of Life campaign and raised $2,981 at the North Battleford location. The Shoppers Drug Mart Tree of Life campaign is a four-week program held across Canada each fall that gives customers and employees the opportunity to donate directly to organizations that make a difference to women’s health in their own communities.
The funds raised will be allocated towards the Breast Health Fund at BUH. The Breast Health Fund supports new equipment and education for the mammography department and encourages breast screening exams. Mammography exams use a low-dose x-ray examination to detect breast cancer when that cancer is too small to be felt as a lump. The aim of screening mammography is to detect unsuspected breast cancers at an early stage, when they are most treatable, and help save lives.
Shoppers Drug Mart Associate-owners play an active role within their communities, not only providing trusted health care advice and services, but also keen insights into the needs of their community. Taking into account the significance of each need and which women’s health organization resonates most deeply with the community, each associate-owner selects a women’s health organization to benefit from the funds raised from their store’s Tree of Life program.
