Bremo Giving Back to the Community

Bremo Pharmacy is always there to provide care and convenient services for the community.
One of our core values states: We believe in giving back to the community.

Here are a few examples of what we are currently involved with:

NAMIWalks

We are proud to give our support to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and participate again in this year’s NAMIWalks on Saturday, October 21 at Innsbrook! NAMIWalks is a family-friendly, fun-filled community event dedicated to the support of people with mental health illnesses. Many of our patients here at Bremo are affected by a mental illness in one form or another so this is an event that’s near and dear to our hearts.

We care about NAMI’s programs and this event because nearly 60 million Americans of all sorts of backgrounds live their lives with a mental health condition, but only less than one-third of adults and one-half of children receive services for it. NAMIWalks not only helps raise awareness on mental illnesses, but it also educates the public on these conditions in order to reduce stigma and increase understanding. Those who have loved ones with mental illnesses can find more information on resources that can provide them with assistance and supportive care at the walk.

Please join us in raising awareness about mental illnesses in our community and making a difference in the lives of those affected. To find out more information about the NAMIWalks and how you can help, please visit: www.namiwalks.org/virginia.

Eye Make A Difference

We are participating in the Eye Make A Difference program through Eyes of Hope to help provide eye-care for more than 1.6 million people in need worldwide. There is an enormous amount of people who are in great need of eyewear but do not have access to them due to income, distance, or disaster. Do you have glasses that you rarely or are no longer using? Someone somewhere around the world could really use the opportunity to see things in a new light. Come to any of our Bremo locations and donate your gently-used glasses there!

And while you’re there, why not ask about our SyncRx service? With SyncRx, life gets a lot simpler. To understand the importance behind this service, please check out:

MedSafe

Sometimes people have old pills lying around because they no longer need them or their doctor switched them to another strength or a completely different medicine. Worried that your child or pet may find and swallow them? Don’t know how to properly dispose of them? Simply bring them over to our pharmacy! Come talk to one of our staff pharmacists and we’ll gladly help you get rid of your old medicines!

Bremo Pharmacy loves giving back to the community, and we hope you will contribute along with us!
