Pharmasave support of Canadian Cancer Society in full bloom

By Michael Johnsen - 04/03/2018
Pharmasave on Monday announced it will once again partner with the Canadian Cancer Society for Daffodil Month.

Held every April, Daffodil Month is the charity’s national fundraising campaign. From April 1 to 30, daffodil pins will be available at Pharmasave’s more than 650 locations across the country. Funds raised will support world-class research and services for patients and their families, such as the Cancer Information Service which answered more than 43,000 questions from Canadians last year.

“When the ones we love are diagnosed with or die from cancer, friends and family often want to do something to help or honour them. Fundraising enables change and we can all have a part in advancing the cancer cause through our generosity,” Carly Schur, national director, corporate programs for the Canadian Cancer Society, said. “We are very pleased to partner with Pharmasave and are inspired by how the campaign has grown over the years thanks to the hard work and commitment of the staff in every store location.”

Pharmasave has been a committed partner of the Canadian Cancer Society over several years and has helped raise more than $370,000.

“From coast to coast, giving back to the community is a core value at Pharmasave,” Jennifer Engele, national manager, marketing and communications, said. Each Pharmasave store operates independently to serve its individual community, with programs and services tailored to the needs of the consumers and a commitment to helping all customers. “Pharmasave proudly supports what matters in communities because communities matter to Pharmasave,” Engele added.

This April, Pharmasave encourages Canadians to make donation and proudly wear a daffodil pin as a sign of their commitment to the fight against cancer.
