More than 80,000 children reached in 2013 alone through Vitamin Angels partnership

Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy, the nation’s first and largest chain of integrative pharmacies, is proud to announce that it has served nearly 400,000 children through its partnership with Vitamin Angels. Donations have added up to $98,000 since the start of the partnership in 2004, enough money to serve more than 395,000 people.

Vitamin Angels is a non-profit organization that raises funds to help at-risk populations—specifically pregnant women, new mothers and children under 5—gain access to life-saving and life-changing micronutrients. Donations to Vitamin Angels go toward distribution of prenatal vitamins, vitamin A and children’s multivitamins, which help increase immunity and boost overall health to increase these populations’ chances for health and success.

“Pharmaca has been one of our longest and most consistent contributors,” says Brittany Andrews, account manager for Vitamin Angels. “Pharmaca’s highly trained staff truly understands the value and importance of essential nutrients. They are not only passionate about the health of their customers, but also about ensuring the health and wellbeing of children around the world. We are so grateful to be working with them.”

“From the start, we have felt strongly about sharing the gift of healthy living with people far and wide—not just with our customers,” says Don Summerfield, Pharmaca’s vice president of integrative medicine. “Vitamin Angels has been the perfect partner in this venture and we’re so happy we have been able to contribute to their important work.”

Pharmaca collects donations for Vitamin Angels throughout the year (donation cards are available at the register in every Pharmaca location), and runs several special promotions each year to encourage customer donations. Pharmaca hopes to reach another 80,000 children in 2014.
