NEW YORK — Walgreens and JDRF on Friday announced that Walgreens' community-based programs helped raise more than $1.3 million in 2012 for JDRF. The year marked the 21st anniversary of Walgreens' participation in JDRF's nationwide campaign to raise funds for research to put an end to diabetes.
During the month of July, as part of the Walgreens Way to Well Commitment, customers at more than 7,500 Walgreens stores could make donations of $1 or more at checkout.
"Walgreens is proud to support JDRF, and we're thankful to our customers and employees who have helped raise more than $18 million toward Type 1 diabetes efforts over the past 20 years," stated John Gremer, director of community affairs for Walgreens.
"The support that Walgreens provides JDRF year after year is remarkable," said Jeffrey Brewer, president and CEO of JDRF. "For more than two decades, their commitment to JDRF's mission has helped fuel critical research toward preventing, better treating, and curing Type 1 diabetes. We value our collaboration with Walgreens and look forward to the continued growth of Type 1 diabetes research progress."
