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. Often survivors of an assault have limited supplies necessary to clean up with after an assault and sometimes leave the hospital in only a hospital gown. DONATE to their crowdfunding campaign NOW! and help survivors leave the hospital with dignity.
