The Campus Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy, in collaboration with the Saskatoon Sexual Assault Centre, is proud to support our post-sexual assault hygiene kits. These kits will be delivered to local hospitals in Saskatoon and given out to survivors of a sexual assault.

DONATE to their crowdfunding campaign NOW! and help survivors leave the hospital with dignity.
