Message from Alex Gourlay, Co-Chief Operating Officer for Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc.
“Over the last few months, I’ve been inspired by countless stories about our team members – some going above and beyond, others simply doing their best to advise patients or comfort customers in their moments of greatest need. This is how Walgreens has always shown up for our communities, but in these times, simple acts become moments of immense pride for our company. I am grateful for the chance to applaud our team members as they continue to champion the health and well-being of America throughout this difficult time in our country.”
Message from SlimFast:
Leading is not easy during uncertain times. Yet, somehow, that’s exactly what our retail partners have done. They provided essential resources to the community, found innovative ways to help customers faced with difficult challenges, and offered a shoulder for people to lean on. During hard times, their teams leaned on each other, too. We’d like to say a heartfelt “Thank You” to the local heroes who never stopped serving others. The SlimFast family is proud of how our retail partners have helped people take on the day – together.
