Kmart Pharmacy supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Rx transfer program
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — Kmart Pharmacy is introducing an incentive program by which customers will be rewarded for transferring their prescriptions to a Kmart Pharmacy, and the retailer also will support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The Transfer for a Cause program, which will run through Oct. 31, encourages customers to consolidate their prescriptions. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, more than 31% of Americans use two or more prescription drugs, which is a 5% increase over the last 10 years. With each qualifying prescription transferred:
- Kmart Pharmacy customers will receive up to a $20 Kmart gift card. Customers may be eligible to receive up to $100 in Kmart gift cards by transferring their qualifying prescriptions (up to five transferred prescriptions per household) to Kmart Pharmacy; and
- Kmart will donate $5 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation — dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure for the disease — from every eligible prescription transferred to Kmart Pharmacy (up to five transferred prescriptions per household) between now and Oct. 31, with a minimum donation of $10,000.
"In addition to helping raise funds for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, consolidating prescriptions is a simple step customers can take that will help give them even more control of their health," said Robb Ayshford, divisional VP pharmacy administration for Kmart. "Recognizing that the number of customers who have multiple prescriptions is increasing, it’s even more important for them to maintain all of them at one pharmacy. At Kmart, our knowledgeable pharmacists will review all prescriptions to help reduce the chance of a drug interaction."
