Sterling Pharmacy communities have helped in the coming donation of $72,961 to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Since 2016, Sterling pharmacies have teamed up with their communities and the Astrup Family Foundation to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association.
To celebrate Astrup Companies’ 70th anniversary, the Astrup Family Foundation agreed to match up to $35,000 to help hit a goal of raising $70,000. Throughout June, Sterling patients and customers filled the stores with purple Alzheimer’s Association pin-ups by donating $1, $3, or $5. Each pin-up included the name of someone to whom the donation was dedicated.
For Sterling Pharmacy, the fight against Alzheimer’s started as a tribute to its founder, Leonard Astrup. Thanks to the hard work of their employees and the overwhelming generosity of their patients and customers, Sterling pharmacies had donated $210,500 leading up to this year’s efforts and are well on their way to $300,000 in donations.
In the month of June, $27,655 was raised in the Sterling pharmacies, with an additional $10,306 raised by the other Astrup Companies businesses. With the Astrup Family Foundation matching $35,000, a total of $72,961 will soon be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association.
