Orillia’s three Shoppers Drug Mart stores have presented a cheque for $7,448 to Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) in support of women’s health.
The funds were generated during their annual Growing Women’s Health Campaign held in September and October. The donation will go towards the addition of Tomosynthesis technology to the recently acquired Digital Mammography machine. Tomosynthesis enhances the detail of digital images with 3-dimensional breast cancer screening.
During the month-long campaign, customers of local Shoppers Drug Mart stores were given the opportunity to purchase and personalize their own paper “Growing Women’s Health” icon; a “leaf” for a loonie, a “butterfly” for $5, an “apple” for $10 and a “bird” for $50.The icons were prominently displayed on the Growing Women’s Health Tree in all participating stores.
