Chemists’ Own puts chil­dren first

Pharmacy Daily - - Front Page -

PHAR­MACY-ONLY brand Chemists’ Own has high­lighted its na­tional ‘Help Us Help Our Lo­cal Com­mu­nity’ ini­tia­tive aimed at as­sist­ing phar­ma­cies to raise money for early learn­ing cen­tres in their lo­cal ar­eas.

Those phar­ma­cies which chose to par­tic­i­pate were be­ing sup­ported by Chemists’ Own to raise money for their pre­ferred lo­cal cen­tre by means of in-store do­na­tion boxes and sales of the Chemists’ Own Chil­dren’s Range.

One phar­macy from each state will be cho­sen to re­ceive a $1,000 Ed­u­ca­tional Ex­pe­ri­ence voucher to do­nate to their early learn­ing cen­tre of choice.

As part of the ini­tia­tive, Chemists’ Own has also re­leased a chil­dren’s ac­tiv­ity book that has been dis­trib­uted to over 1,000 early learn­ing cen­tres and par­tic­i­pat­ing phar­ma­cies na­tion­ally.

Last year the cam­paign raised more than $10,000 na­tion­ally - this is now the fourth year of the Help Us Help ini­tia­tive.

The pro­gram will wrap up this month, with the win­ning phar­macy fundraisers from each state to be an­nounced in mid-Dec.
