This is what the holidays are all about – the joy of giving.
This December, London Drugs teamed up with local non-profit organizations like Operation Friendship Seniors Society for Santa for Seniors, an annual holiday donation drive that supports local seniors in Western Canada.
We are so proud of, and grateful to, the London Drugs team in Northern Alberta for leading the way with this heartwarming contribution–and prouder still that the Santa for Seniors campaign is now nation-wide.
We’ve seen an outpouring of support to help thousands of seniors by fulfilling personalized gifts for seniors this Christmas. Customers in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba contributed to the initiative by picking up a wish list tag at participating London Drugs locations and shopping for the desired items, leaving donations at the store to be delivered to a senior for Christmas.
Last Thursday in Edmonton, Sherwood Park and St. Albert., Santa Claus and several volunteers handed out gifts such as slippers, blankets, toothpaste, books and warm gloves, spreading Christmas cheer to over 2,000 seniors in need.
Thank you to everyone for the overwhelming response to the Santa for Seniors initiative, and for bringing joy to so many seniors over the holiday season.
