The Alpha Group & Nu-Quest Support Southwest Coast

Wreckhouse Press 

The Alpha Group of pharmacy owners together with Nu-Quest Distribution provided a donation of $15,000 to support the immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resiliency, and risk reduction activities in areas of the southwest coast affected by Hurricane

Cindy Goudie-Lapolla, local pharmacy owner and Alpha Group member, presented the cheques to the Town Mayor, Brian Button, at The Medicine Cabinet on Water Street in Channel-Port aux Basques. These funds will be added to the on-going fundraising efforts by the region, with a special account set up at the Atlantic Edge Credit Union.  The distribution of funds will be overseen by a committee of representatives from all Towns affected in the region.

Robert Doyle, President of The Alpha Group stated, “We are deeply saddened by the devastation and loss that our neighbors on the southwest coast are facing.  As community pharmacists, we will support and work in the region to ensure we continue to provide health care services during this arduous journey of recovery.”  

Lindsey Cooper, VP at Nu-Quest echoed the call for support, “We immediately knew help was needed.  As it is not possible to be there in person to offer assistance with the recovery efforts, our thoughts and prayers are with all the people living in these communities.  On behalf of Nu-Quest Distribution we are honored to provide a donation during this difficult time.”
