This past fall, team member Brittany Briscoe shared her story, explaining how Walgreens’ close relationship with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and Light The Night helped her and countless other blood cancer survivors. It’s all part of Walgreens’ 2019 pledge to contribute more than $25 million to LLS and Susan G. Komen through 2024, helping fund research initiatives and improve the health and well-being of people living with cancer in the U.S.
Now, thanks to new features of the myWalgreens loyalty program, customers can join in, too. By logging in to your myWalgreens account online or through the Walgreens mobile app in March, customers have the option to donate their Walgreens Cash rewards directly to the Raise Hope, End Cancer Fundraiser, which will benefit LLS and Susan G. Komen directly. And now through March 13, customers can also make a donation at check-out in all Walgreens stores nationwide.
