Independent Pharmacists Help Manitoba Children Living With Disabilities Become More Independent

Once again in 2012, the Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation will benefit from the proceeds of Encounter Brand products available at independent community pharmacies across Manitoba.

From today to September 30, 2012, Procurity, a pharmacy distribution and services company owned by Manitoba’s independent community pharmacists, will donate a portion of the proceeds from Encounter product sales to the Foundation. These funds help children like Waverley Leduc get the support and programming they need to lead more independent lives.

Waverley is a typical Grade 2 student, except that she’s diagnosed with Rett Syndrome, a genetic neurological disorder which affects her speech and both her fine and gross motor skills. To compound the challenges for her and her family, she also has a seizure disorder. Waverley and her family are just one of the many families who receive help and support from the Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation. Hundreds more families in Manitoba, Nunavut and N.W. Ontario have benefitted from their ongoing programs and services.

Since 2010 Procurity has been committed to helping the Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation in their fundraising efforts.

“Once again we’re extremely grateful to the shareholders and staff of Procurity for their commitment to helping these children,” says Christine Schollenberg, Executive Director, The Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation. “Last year’s initiative was very successful, so running this campaign another year just continues to enhance our capacity, as well as the quality of programs we can offer.”

“We strongly believe in CRF’s mandate which is why we’re so happy to continue to support this incredible organization,” says Wayne Rivers, President & CEO, Procurity. “Last year, through a combination of Encounter proceeds and staff fundraisers, we were able to generate donations
to the Foundation in excess of $50,000, and this year we hope to be able to surpass that amount!’

Encounter private label products are exclusively available at independent CounterWise Drugmarts and CounterCare Pharmacies across Winnipeg and Manitoba.

About Procurity Inc.

Be fulfilled is Procurity’s mandate and the concept of ‘giving back’ to the community, profession, and industry are deeply entrenched within the organization’s core values. Established in 1978 as United Pharmacists Ltd., today Procurity is the purchasing, distribution, and marketing arm for a network of independently owned pharmacies. Operating 2 retail banner programs, CounterWise Drug Marts and CounterCare Pharmacies, as well as their own line of Encounter Brand Private Label Products, Procurity continues to serve as the voice and vehicle for the security and growth of community pharmacy across the Canadian prairies.
