The Uniprix Group is one of the main partners of the S.O.S. Richelieu cleanup, which took place on June 11, 12, 18 and 19, 2011.
"Our affiliated pharmacists and their employees in Montérégie experienced hardship as a result of the floods, and to show our concern, our team from around Quebec decided to get involved, with the help of our suppliers. In fact, we prepared 2,500 bags containing various products needed for the cleanup (gloves, masks, plastic bags, water, juice, etc.) – a value of more than $115,000. The bags will be distributed by S.O.S Richelieu to families affected by the floods," said François Castonguay, President and CEO of the Uniprix Group.
