The Cindy Parolin Safe Home program in Princeton has received a gift that will help to improve services and programs.

The Princeton Shoppers Drug Mart 2012 Tree of Life fundraising campaign brought in $3,419 thanks to the combined efforts of Shoppers Drug Mart, it’s employees and customers.

“The success of the 2012 Tree of Life Campaign can be attributed to the support and commitment of our loyal customers and staff,” said owner/pharmacist Julie Traballo. “Shoppers Drug Mart has  partnered with women’s health organizations at national, regional and local levels, in order to provide direct support, ensuring that essential funding, resources and education are available to meet the needs of Canadian women. We are pleased to present this year’s Tree of Life campaign proceeds to the Cindy Parolin Safe Home.”

On Wednesday, Dec. 12 Heather Eriksen and Dani Grothe  were presented the $3,419 cheque by Julie Traballo and organizer of the fundraisers Sheri Tosczak.

Eriksen and Grothe, both overjoyed and very pleasantly surprised at the amount presented responded with, “Oh my goodness and thank you seems so inadequate!” The excited pair added, “this is such a great community.”

The funds were raised through the Tree of Life paper icon sales, a bake sale, an employee made cookbook sale and by a used book sale at Shoppers Drug Mart during the four week campaign.

The Shoppers Drug Mart Tree of Life campaign is a four week effort held across Canada each fall in support of women’s whole health in body, mind and spirit.

Since 2002, the campaign has raised more than $17 million for Canadian health charities within 1,200 Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix locations.

100 percent of the funds raised in  stay within the community they were raised in.
