Peoples Drug Mart/ Peoples Pharmacy donate $25,000 to ALS BC Patient Services

Peoples Drug Mart/Peoples Pharmacy have been the title sponsor of the Walks for ALS that take place in BC & the Yukon for the past 10 years.  Since that time, Peoples has donated over $467,000 to support people living with ALS. Funds are raised at the stores from a Vitamin Drive held in the Spring of each year and from the Stars of Hope campaign held in June ALS Awareness month.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Update

Representatives of the ALS Societies across Canada met in Toronto this past weekend to give thoughtful consideration regarding the allocation of the funds raised through the Ice Bucket Challenges. As beneficiaries of these donations, we accept this task as huge responsibility and are mindful of what this means towards fostering research and supporting families living with ALS. All ALS Society Boards will now be asked to ratify the decisions made in Toronto and an announcement of the final outcome will be made in early November 2014.
