Our next Heart Campaign spotlight is College Ave Drugs in Regina.
This is where our partnership with community pharmacies is born out of. Jack Mullock has been the owner of College Ave Drugs for 25 years, purchasing it in 1997 when it was known as Williams Drugs.
We opened our first Supportive Living Home in Regina and the partnership with Jack has remained. Our CEO Jacque Tisher and Jack go way back – with both of their children attending the same school!
They share a common goal of making it simple for families to get the care they need. Jack recalls that Hope’s Home has always been close to his heart, having had ties to youth with medically complex conditions for many years.
One of the ways Jack knew he could help was to create a one stop shop for families. Caregivers are often sourcing equipment, dietary supplements and many other supplies from separate providers. Jack began sourcing much of the supplies caregivers needed to make it easier on them.
One thing Jack notes is that he is as supportive of caregivers as he is of the kids. He sees the ways they are pulled in different directions and does what he can to streamline the process. It’s been great for him to branch out and develop a new framework of knowledge while providing an essential service to the community.
Jack’s involvement in the community can be seen in his reason behind giving back. He sees the community as a network of people who support him and his employees. They give him a sense of security; they give his employees a livelihood. They allow him to provide jobs for other people. He sees it as his responsibility to give back, to give thanks for everything this community has given him.
In the last few years, Jack has noticed that more and more people are becoming aware of Hope’s Home and what we do. He states that it’s important that people know how complicated the care is and what it really takes to look after each other in the community.
And as a reminder – you can still purchase a heart at College Ave Pharmacy until February 28th for our heart campaign where they will be matching donations!
Thank you so much to Jack and your team for being a part of the Hope’s Home family!
