London Drugs presented a donation of $2362.70 to The Salvation Army, British Columbia division. The total was collected from wireless pin pads that were given to The Salvation Army during their Christmas Kettle Campaign in 2011. Kettle workers stationed at two of London Drugs largest locations, Broadway and Cambie in Vancouver and Lonsdale Ave in North Vancouver gave passerby and customers the ability to make a donation to the Salvation Army using their debit and credit cards.
The Salvation Army provides much needed food, clothing and social support to thousands of individuals and families throughout the year. In addition to the pin pads, London Drugs accepted donations at the cashiers at all 34 of its Lower Mainland stores, with donations going directly to those citizens living in the communities where the donations were made.
In attendance at the cheque presentation were Major Brian Venables, divisional secretary for public relations and development Salvation Army, and Dave Woogman, London Drugs Cambie and Broadway store manager.
