We don't just love to support our local brands but also our local communities and love to give opportunities for our teams to give back to our local community. Below is some of the ways we try our best to give back to our local community.
Paid Day Off for Volunteering
All staff have the opportunity to have a full paid day off to do volunteering with their organization of choice that is close to their heart. We love to encourage our staff to give back to local organizations that support our local communities.
Paid Day Off for Furthering Education
All of our staff have the opportunity to receive a paid day off to complete courses and/or seminars that support continuing their education on anti-racism and inclusivity.
Every Giving Tuesday in November/December we donate 100% of our proceeds from Giving Tuesday to the chosen charity. Every year we change the charity that we choose to support and we usually let our customers/supporters vote on the charity that we will support that year.
Christmas Tree Give Back Program
Inspired by London Drugs Seniors Christmas Tree we do something similar for the less fortunate in the areas of where our stores are located. Since most of our stores are located in an "inner city" we wanted to come up with a way to give back to our direct community where our stores call home. Working with local organizations we give the opportunity to our shoppers to grab a Christmas tag off the tree to purchase Christmas gifts for members of the community that maybe wouldn't be receiving one this year.
