Shoppers Drug Mart FSJ raises close to $33,000 for FSJ Hospital Foundation


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Love You campaign by Shoppers Drug Mart raised $32,495 for the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation.

The Love You campaign gave residents the chance to donate to the Foundation by purchasing a paper leaf, apple, butterfly or bird that was then placed on display inside the store.

$16,280.00 of the $32,495 was raised through raffles of tickets to anywhere that WestJet flies. These were donated by WestJet. The raffles took place in September and October of 2016.
