Until Sept. 15, Shoppers Drug Mart customers in Acton will be asked to lend support to the 2006 Tree of Life fundraising campaign. The local store has selected the McKenzie-Smith Bennett Public School Playground Fund and the Acton Agricultural Society's It's More Than Fair building campaign fund as its local charities of choice. The campaign gives customers the opportunity to purchase and personalize their own `leaf' for a loonie, `maple leaf' for $5 or an `apple' for $50, which are then attached to a tree branch and displayed prominently in Shoppers Drug Mart. When the final amount is tallied, 75 per cent will be donated to community funds and the remaining 25 per cent will be directed to aid national healthcare charities. "Since the start of our Tree of Life campaign, customers and employees of Shoppers Drug Mart have given back over $5.3 million to the communities in which we work and live," said Karen Bossin, director, Events and Public Relations at Shoppers Drug Mart.
