Tree of Life Donation
The Tree of Life Campaign collects donations over a three week period each year by having customers purchase a "leaf" for a loonie, a "maple leaf" for $5 or an "apple" for $50. Donors can personalize a "leaf" to be placed on a branch of the Tree of Life which is prominently displayed in the store.
During the three week campaign, from September 18th, 2010 to October 15th, 2010, more than 1,180 Shoppers Drug Mart / Pharmaprix stores across Canada participated in the 2010 Tree of Life Campaign to provide support to 375 Canadian healthcare related charities. National in scope, yet locally based, the Tree of Life campaign sees 100 percent of the proceeds donated to women's health charities within individual communities, allowing women even greater access to services and information they need to stay healthy in mind, body and spirit.
This year Shoppers Drug Mart located in Churchill Square, St. John's generously donated its Tree of Life proceeds to the Eating Disorder Foundation of NL. The Foundation is truly appreciative of this generous donation and would like to thank Mr. Ed Myler and Mr.Vince Hogan of Shoppers Drug Mart, Churchill Square for presenting this donation during the Foundation's Annual General Meeting.
