July 7 , 2020 - I am pleased to inform everyone this year we raised $847,337.19 to support thevital work of the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC). This is an amazing number even without our yearly bottle drive. Thanks to everyone who helped out with various fundraising events. Including our donation, UFCW Canada fundraising efforts for the LLSC altogether reached $ 1,402,327.22 for the 2019/2020 fundraising year.
Just 20 years ago 80% of children with this blood disease would not survive. Now over 80% do survive. The goal is to stamp out blood cancers totally.
Sisters, brothers, and friends, congratulations again and thank you for your LLSC fundraising efforts this year, and every year, to help to find a cure and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood cancers. And thank you also to Ted Moroz and the team at The Beer Store for partnering with us in this vital annual campaign to support the life-changing and life-saving work of the LLSC.
John Nock, President
