London Drugs is proud to support Toys 4 Teens this holiday season
Every year, many parents struggle to afford gifts to put under the Christmas tree for their children. While toy drives are making a big difference in the lives of many of these children, the amount of gifts donated for tweens and teens always falls short of the demand.
We are proud to support Jack FM Radio Calgary’s annual Toys 4 Teens holiday toy drive. The campaign is part of the Salvation Army’s Family Christmas Assistance Program, which aims to put Christmas gifts in the hands of those less fortunate. Last year, 625 gifts, $4,500 in gift cards and $2,700 in cash was donated to Toys 4 Teens.

In less than one week, London Drugs customers have donated over $23,000 towards the Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan Fund through cashier tills at all of our 77 store locations. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to our customers for rallying to help the Philippines recover from one of the most powerful storms on record.
The donations go directly to the Canadian Red Cross recovery program. They are currently setting up a field hospital which is expected to be operational by Wednesday. In addition, they will be working to provide the most urgent needs including emergency medical assistance, clean drinking water and food.
The federal government will match each dollar Canadians donate to registered charities, including the Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan Fund.
Bon Voyage! It’s winter travel season and time to check passports. Passport Canada has a new ePassport or Biometric Passport system and London Drugs is the only retailer in Canada with the same biometric imaging technology.
One of the new aspects of the passport technology is the measurement of unique physical characteristics, such as facial features, for the purpose of verifying identity with a high level of certainty.
Typhoon Haiyan ravaged six central Philippine islands on Friday. It is one of the strongest storms to ever make landfall. The true scale of devastation has yet to emerge as communications and transportation links have been shattered, however it is clear that the country is in dire need of help to support rescue, emergency medical assistance and provide basic necessitates to the more than 9.5 million people affected.
