Shoppers Drug Mart 'Tree of Life' sprouts support for RMH patients

Shoppers Drug Mart’s Tree of Life fundraiser continues to improve breast health care for local patients at Ross Memorial Hospital.

The Tree of Life program encourages customers of Lindsay’s two Shoppers Drug Mart locations to buy a leaf ($1), a butterfly ($5), an acorn ($10) or a cardinal ($50). The decorations are signed by the donor and posted in the store, and 100% of the proceeds are donated to benefit women’s health.

The owner of Lindsay’s west end Shoppers Drug Mart, Mahvash Moorbakhsh, is touched by the support the Tree of Life receives from patrons. It’s a cause she cares about deeply, as members of her family have had breast cancer.

On February 23rd, Mahvash presented a cheque for $1,747.00 to Erin Coons, Executive Director of the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation. She was joined by Christine Vonk, Pharmacy Assistant, who assisted with the Tree of Life effort. Absent was Janice Wildman, Cash Manager, who spearheaded the fundraiser at the west end store.

“We’re so grateful for the support that the patrons of Shoppers Drug Mart have shown for the Ross Memorial’s breast screening program,” said Coons. “Every time they add to the Tree of Life, they’re helping a patient.”
