Sterling pharmacies across southern Minnesota and northern Iowa are raising funds for the Alzheimer's Association in honor of their founder, Leonard Astrup.
Since 2016, with help from the communities they serve and matching dollars from the Astrup Family Foundation, the Sterling pharmacies have raised $210,500 to help in the fight against Alzheimer's. This year, Sterling is celebrating its 70th anniversary and along with Sterling Long Term Care Pharmacy, Sterling Specialty Pharmacy, IHPN, and Smart-Fill – as well as matching funds up to $35,000 from the Astrup Family Foundation -- Sterling Pharmacy has set a goal of fundraising goal of $70,000.
Sterling encourages their communities to join their efforts by purchasing $1, $3, and $5 pin-ups at the store or visit YourSterlingPharmacy.com and click "Donate Now" on the Alzheimer's donation pop-up to donate online. All donations raised by Sterling in June will receive a matching donation (up to $35,000).
