Palm Beach County, Florida (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
Sancilio & Company is announcing that their Ocean Blue® brand of natural supplements is teaming up with Walgreens® in support of the Vitamin Angels program. For 20 years, Vitamin Angels has been assisting people in at-risk demographic groups who are in need. Specifically targeting pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five years of age, the non-profit organization helps them gain access to critical lifesaving and potentially life changing vitamins and minerals.
Now through the end of 2017, proceeds of Ocean Blue® product sales at Walgreens® nationwide will go toward helping provide vitamins and supplements to at-risk population groups, including millions of children in the U.S. and around the world. Last year, Vitamin Angels®, Walgreens®, Sancilio & Company and other participating vendors were able to reach more than 18 million children through these efforts. The goal is 100 million for 2014.
The Vitamin Angels® program has received a 4 out of 4 star rating from Charity Navigator for six straight years and provides over 90% of its donations to its programs. Customers are being made aware of the program through in-store signage, call-outs in their circulars, and online.
Consumers are invited to join in the effort by supporting participating brands like Ocean Blue® at their neighborhood Walgreens® stores.
