Emily helps get students online

Seventeen-year-old Emily McCreery knows the challenge many students faced when schools shut down due to COVID-19 and classes moved online. “It was hard to do schoolwork via Zoom,” says the Regina, SK resident, who is entering grade 12 this fall and works part-time as a cashier at Shoppers Drug Mart®. But Emily realized that for students who don’t have access to reliable technology at home, in particular laptops, it was even harder.

The tale of Bryce, a toddler and a raccoon

Pharmacists save lives – just ask Bryce Barry, a pharmacist at Shoppers Drug Mart® in Park Place Mall in Lethbridge, Alta. In May, a one-year-old boy was in his Lethbridge backyard with his mother when he ate some raccoon feces out of a flowerpot. His parents did some online research and learned raccoon poop often contains a roundworm that can cause neurological disease or death. Drug intervention within 72 hours is critical.

Putting our money where mental health is

Last summer, Pascal Niccoli, Associate at a Shoppers Drug Mart® location in Waterloo, Ont., started noticing a concerning shift among his customers, patients and store team: anxiety and stress were on the rise, mental wellbeing was declining, and he was seeing a sharp increase in demand for medications to treat anxiety, depression and other psychiatric disorders. So, Pascal started a conversation that has since snowballed into a half-million-dollar donation to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).
