Praise for a Corporate Hero – Walgreens

Walgreens has been a proud supporter of JDRF Sneaker Sales for over 20 years and is a Principal Partner. During the month of July 2012, the company will once again sell scannable sneakers in their stores to raise money and create excitement about the Walk to Cure Diabetes. Sneaker Sales provide tremendous support in funding research to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D). Their participation in the Sneaker Sales program helps improve the lives of millions of people affected by T1D.

As one of Business Week’s “Best Places to Launch a Career,” Walgreens is committed to being one of the best employers for today’s workforce by focusing on social responsibility, ecological sustainability as well as employee and customer development. The JDRF Sneaker Sales program continues to fit right into their company values. Store employees are encouraged and excited to give back to their community in this way. And, for that, we praise Walgreens for being a Corporate Hero!
