LCBOs support Cystic Fibrosis Awareness MonthWednesday, May 07, 2014 by: Kate Adams
During Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month which takes place the month of May folks can show their support by making a donation at any of the more than 635 LCBO stores throughout Ontario.
LCBO stores will have the donation boxes on display at each of the checkout registers until May 24th.
“We are grateful for the support of the LCBO, its employees and especially its customers, to help raise funds and awareness to help Canadians with cystic fibrosis,” says Maureen Adamson, President and CEO of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
“Through the support of our partners, like LCBO, we are able to continue to invest in life-saving CF research and care. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the fight against cystic fibrosis.”
“LCBO is pleased to partner with Cystic Fibrosis Canada and support a variety of worthy causes throughout the year,” says LCBO President & CEO Bob Peter.
“The generous support from LCBO customers and staff helps these charitable organizations make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and communities across Ontario.”
Officials with the LCBO say Cystic Fibrosis Canada is one of 28 provincial, as well as numerous local charities, that will benefit from LCBO’s province-wide donation box program in 2014.
