As a new mom nine years ago, I found myself headed to Walgreens with a two-month-old in need of her first prescription. Tired from being up all night with a screaming baby and full of worry about this small, sick child of mine, I headed straight back to the pharmacy. The pharmacist took one look at me and knew I was frazzled and full of fear. She explained to me in the kindest way how to administer my daughter’s medicine and then talked to me mom-to-mom and gave me some tips from a veteran mom. To this day, I am still touched by how much she cared for not just my daughter, but for me.
Since then, we’ve made hundreds of trips to Walgreens. During this time more than ever, I’m so thankful for the Walgreens drive-thru where I can safely get prescriptions filled without having to leave my car.
We’re in a crazy time in our world right now, there’s no doubt. There’s so much stress and sadness in the world, but there’s also so much good! I was reminded of this a few weeks ago when I headed to Walgreens for a prescription and some other OTC medicine for my nine-year-old ‘baby.’ In a world where everything is changing so quickly, I love that I can count on Walgreens to always care so well for my family and our community.
Thank you doesn’t begin to even cover it.

- To the pharmacists who are there when I’m in a hurry to pick up a prescription and who have shown so much patience in answering all my questions, you’ve made so many stressful moments easier.
- To the warehouse team who assures that my Walgreens always has everything I need, whether it’s OTC medicine, greeting cards or a candy bar, thank you.
