Drug stores contributing to Oso fund

To help victims of the mudslide in Oso, Wash., and aid recovery efforts in the region, Walgreens is contributing $25,000 to the American Red Cross Oso Mudslide Relief Fund and is also making it possible for customers to make donations at Walgreens stores.

During the next two weeks customers shopping at any Walgreens store in Oregon, Washington, Montana and Northern Idaho will have the opportunity to make donations to the relief fund in increments of $1, $5 or $10.

“Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Oso who suffered such devastating losses and to the emergency personnel who responded to this disaster and continue to aid in recovery efforts” said Sue Bandurraga, Walgreens market vice president for Seattle and surrounding communities. “We are happy to make our stores throughout the region available to our generous customers who wish to make a contribution for our neighbors in Snohomish County.”
