Leukemia research fundraising at Loblaws July 9 to July 26

Superstores and other Loblaws stores will once again be supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) by asking for $2 donations at their tills from July 9-26.

This year’s campaign will once again fund much-needed research for a cure while improving the quality of life of those diagnosed, making a real difference to the more than 127,000 Canadians living with or in remission from a blood cancer. The LLSC's commitment demonstrates that every donation counts and there is power in the collective of our community to create positive change.

The LLSC’s partnership with Loblaws grew from the organization’s decades-long relationship with the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. UFCW Canada members work at Loblaws as well as many other grocery stores across Canada.

UFCW Canada members, activists and Local Unions have altogether raised over $43.7 million over the past three decades for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).


Together we can #endbloodcancers forever!
