Santa to Visit Seniors Across Western Canada This Year

Stocking Stuffers for Seniors at London Drugs

Well, maybe not the real Santa, but seniors across Western Canada will receive a little extra holiday cheer this year, thanks to London Drugs’ very first chain-wide Christmas campaign.

With Stocking Stuffers for Seniors, London Drugs stores across Western Canada are partnering with hundreds of low-income, assisted living, or palliative care homes and organizations to help make this year’s holidays brighter for seniors living in our communities.

Stocking Stuffers for Seniors was developed as a way to connect London Drugs’ generous customers to local seniors during the busy holiday season. Many seniors do not have family or loved ones they can celebrate the holidays with, so Stocking Stuffers for Seniors will provide a gift or needed item, along with a visit from a friendly face during an often lonely time of the year.

The program concept originated in BC’s Okanagan then expanded to Edmonton, where they had the initial goal to help 40 inner-city seniors and ended up helping over 400. The next year, 2,000 people received gifts, and this year, Edmonton alone will support over 4,000 seniors. With the generosity of our communities, imagine what we could do across all of our communities.

To support Stocking Stuffers for Seniors, visit your local London Drugs store from now until December 11. Simply go to the Stocking Stuffers for Seniors Christmas Tree and take a personalized tag from a local senior, purchase or bring in the new, unwrapped items listed on the tag, then drop everything off at the London Drugs Customer Service Counter where you picked up the tag. Santa and his volunteer elves will deliver all personalized gifts in time for Christmas!

Many of the families arrived in Canada in the last year or so, and are in the process of learning a new language and joining our country’s workforce. This is one of their extraordinary stories.

Update on Fort McMurray Fire Relief Efforts

Since May 3, the London Drugs team has been in communication with representatives from Northlands, the Canadian Red Cross, the Edmonton Emergency Relief Society, and the Lac La Biche evacuee centre to discuss and determine how the company, its staff and customers can best help the residents of Fort McMurray.

*Today, London Drugs announces all Fort McMurray residents are welcome to visit any of our Alberta stores and we will provide new, replacement passport photographs at no charge.

In addition to this passport photo offering, we would like to thank our entire London Drugs team for all of your help and support of Fort McMurray thus far. Below is a timeline of support to be proud of.

May 3 – London Drugs enabled donations supporting the Canadian Red Cross at cashier tills at all 78 London Drugs stores and online at www.LondonDrugs.com (As of May 13, $83,000 has been collected from our generous customers.) Thanks to the government’s matching program, these donations will go twice as far bringing the current total to $166,000.

May 4 – A dedicated toll-free emergency pharmacy help line is set up and continues to be available with direct contact to two Edmonton London Drugs pharmacists

The London Drugs events trailer is uploaded with medical and personal supplies and travels north on Highway 63 towards Lac La Biche delivering supplies. Evacuees are told to “flag us down” should they need anything. Once in Lac La Biche, supplies are provided to the Bold Centre. Volunteers learn the evacuees are in need of more water, as well as toys and games to provide distractions for the children.
