American Lung Association in Hawaii Thanks Longs Drugs
(September 1, 2015) -
Hawaii ALA Thanks Longs Drugs for LUNG FORCE Support
This June, Longs Drugs (as part of the CVS Caremark family of stores) supported the LUNG FORCE movement against lung cancer and for women's lung health. Staff asked for donations at check-out and learned about LUNG FORCE to answer any questions from consumers. We are excited to see how much money Longs and all CVS stores helped us raise for this important cause.
Longs supporting LUNG FORCE is a natural fit: the store's parent company, CVS Caremark, made a bold statement in February by announcing that all stores will stop selling tobacco products in October 2014.
American Lung Association staff in Honolulu hosted an event on Monday, June 23 at the Longs store at 1030 S. King Street to thank Longs for its support, register people for the next LUNG FORCE walk, and introduce more customers to the LUNG FORCE initiative. Passersby enjoyed turquoise-frosted cupcakes, arts activities for kids, free temporary whoosh of breath tattoos, and the opportunity to start a team for the November 16 LUNG FORCE walk!
