HealthMart Champions of Care

I always admire the unsung heroes. You know the ones that do good deeds when nobody is watching, not for recognition, but because they have a genuine interest in making things better for others. I’m really trying to teach my girls from a very young age that volunteering and giving back is not just something we do around the holidays, but an everyday thing.

Independent Health Mart pharmacists are looking for those unsung heroes and they want to give back to say thank you, recognize you and reward you for doing what you do.

Health Mart pharmacists are awarding $50,000 in grants to community health non-profits to recognize them for improving health and well-being in their communities.

Here are just a few ways the unsung Champions of Care are helping their communities. 

  • Coaching adult/youth sports or starting sports leagues
  • Taking extra special care of a sick loved one
  • Bringing meals to the elderly
  • Starting a violence prevention program in the community
  • Paying for much needed medicines for someone who can’t afford them
  • Or countless other examples!

Are you doing something great for health of your community? Or do you know someone who is? If so, be sure to enter for a chance to select the non-profit of your choice to receive thousands of dollars in grant money to continue their mission to improve the health of the community.

Entering is simple. Just tell us your story about the good deed you or someone you know has done, and you could win the right to select the non-profit of your choice to receive thousands of dollars to continue critically important work for the health of the community.

Health Mart’s Champions of Care Challenge will shine a bright light on those unsung local heroes whose everyday actions have built healthier families, workplaces, neighborhoods and communities.

  1.  A $30,000 grant chosen by the grand prize winner
  2.  A $3,000 grant chosen by the 2nd place winner
  3.  A $2,000 grant chosen by the 3rd place winner
  4.  $1,000 grants chosen by each of 15 finalists

Here’s How It Works:

Visit www.healthmartcommunity.com and nominate someone or yourself for the Champions of Care Challenge from Health Mart. Then, starting on March 17th, the public will have two weeks to vote for their favorite Champions of Care at www.healthmartcommunity.com.

Are you doing something for your community’s health? Or do you know someone who is?

    When I was in Jr. High it was an actual requirement to volunteer for Community Service in order to attend the school. At first, I had negative feeling about it but it was actually a lot of fun volunteering and giving back to the community.

    This is great for local communities. There are so many charities, but there aren’t as many for local things as I would like to see – and I would rather give locally.

    What a great way to recognize and thank those who so tirelessly help others by volunteering thier time. So nice when a company like Heath Mart takes their time and money to help those that help others.

    This is great for local community charities that do not get so much recognition that they deserve.

    I am a big fan of volunteering and giving back. I am also a fan of non profits as long as their cause is for a good deed or other people actually get benefits from their work. I am grateful they can apply for grants being part of a non profit watching my husband sit on a board of a non profit company I find that it’s a huge challenge to raise any kind of funding. There’s a lot of time and effort spend by caring passionate people.

    That sounds great for local communities! Even therapists like me still take time to volunteer our skills to the people in our community (Rebuilding Together, wheelchair adaptations, etc.)!

    I’m seeing more companies putting their dollars towards community efforts and its a good thing. Most community center have little or no operating money; every dollar will help

    This is great! So many people and organizations need help and most people only know about donating money to large charities as a way to contribute. This will spread awareness of the many ways we can all help out. We’re strong believers that even if you can’t afford to share your money, you can somehow make a way to share a bit of your time.

    This is such a wonderful program to help those who help others. I think it is so important to give back in whatever way you can. We all have some way we can give back.
