PharmaSave Pharmacy and Love in Action Broadford are collaborating to make a difference in the community this week.

Love in Action Broadford is a group of local people who collect food and toiletries for struggling families.

In celebration of Love in Action week, beginning March 18, the community group is asking people to buy items from the pharmacy at cost price, which can then be given to families who can’t afford them.

“If we can help families with food and toiletries, it means they can put their money towards other things like rent,” Love in Action member Barb Radford said.“The key thing is Broadford people looking after the Broadford community.

We collect food and toiletries from the Broadford community to give to those in Broadford who are struggling,” she said.

PharmaSave pharmacist Paul Halabi said his team was happy to support the cause and were honoured to be part of it.

“We’re proud to be able to re-introduce this wonderful program to the community.

I think it’s very worthwhile and we’re very supportive of it,” PharmaSave manager Mel Brereton said.
