Families out shopping and looking for things to do in L.A. can make the holidays brighter for those in need through the Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy Holiday Gift Bag Donation Program. The pharmacy chain offers traditional pharmacy services alongside natural and complementary health solutions, including natural health and beauty products.
Throughout December, Pharmaca customers can purchase much-needed wellness and personal-care products for a chosen local charity. In 2013, Pharmaca stores across the country helped customers donate more than $90,000 worth of wellness goods.
Pharmaca Pacific Palisades (15150 W. Sunset Blvd.) and Pharmaca Brentwood (12025 San Vicente Blvd.) are participating in the program, and are collecting donations for Ocean Park Community Center (OPCC), a community-supported organization in which staff, volunteers and clients work with mutual respect to address the effects of poverty, abuse, neglect and discrimination. OPCC provides housing, medical and mental-health care, addiction treatment and life skills services.
The Pharmaca gift bags are filled with natural personal-care items such as diapers and body wash, and fun Christmas gifts—all of which are handpicked for the charity. Pharmaca Team Members assemble the bags and make them available for customers to purchase for $10, $15 or $25 donations. Pharmaca then delivers the gift bags around Dec. 25.
To donate, stop by your nearest Pharmaca location. For more information, visit www.pharmaca.com.
