Representatives from the Hospital Foundation say the Shoppers Drug Mart Tree of Life Campaign was a success.

Shoppers sold paper leaves and apples to customers, which were then arranged as a ‘tree’ on the store’s wall.

The local Shoppers Drug Mart ranked second highest in B.C. for selling the most leaves and apples.

This year the Tree of Life Campaign raised $7,000 for the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation “Have a Heart” Maternity Equipment Room Campaign.
