Walgreens staff members win first place in their Red Nose Day Campaign, yielding a $15,000 donation
Walgreens, in partnership with Comic Relief, recently announced an internal competition amongst its retail stores nationwide to see which location could raise the most money during its Red Red Nose Day charity fundraising campaign. Employees at Walgreen’s Chicago flagship store located at 757 N. Michigan avenue earned first place in the Red-Nose-Selling competition and selected Covenant House to receive $15,000 in proceeds in honor of the team’s impressive fundraising efforts!
Red Nose Day is a fundraising campaign run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief, built on the belief that the power of entertainment can drive positive change. To date, the campaign has raised $2 billion globally and supports programs that ensure youth are safe, healthy, educated and empowered.
Covenant House Illinois’ Executive Director Susan Reyna-Guerrero took to the podium to thank Comic Relief, Walgreens, and especially all the employees at store #211 for their hard work in making this generous donation possible.
