With donated Shoppers Optimum Points we have purchased an automated blood pressure cuff (top), and a “touchless” thermometer (bottom). They are now a part of the Helping Haiti Medical Clinic’s triage area (middle).In January 2016 Helping Haiti partnered with Shoppers Drug Mart to enable Canadians to donate their Optimum points to Helping Haiti. Since then we have received many donations – ranging from 2 points to 60,000 points. Including Shoppers Drug Mart’s initial donation of 198,000 (a value of $350), we have received a total of 508,139 Points (as of January 3rd, 2017). This has worked out to almost $1000 for us to spend on medical and first aid supplies at Shoppers.
Update: As of January 1, 2018, Shoppers Drug Mart customers will no longer have the option to donate their loyalty points to charity.
