Walgreen's is a welcome addition in my opinion

I want the people of Fallbrook to know what great experiences I have had with the manager of the Fallbrook Walgreen’s store.

I was looking for local merchants to donate to the Rally for a Cure golf tournament held by Fallbrook Women Golfers. Chris, Walgreen’s manager, had some specific ideas about what he’d like to do. He arrived at 6:30 a.m. and set up a Wii putting contest. Ladies paid $1 for chances to sink a putt. Walgreens provided all the prizes; Chris donated all the money collected, and more.

Chris and his assistant came back at lunch to allow more to play the Wii putting game. When he returned, he brought pictures he had taken of the ladies putting in the morning. They had been put them in specialty frames and were given to me to give out.

We were all impressed with his kindness and willingness to help our ladies raise a very nice sum of money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

In December, Chris jumped at the chance to work on the Wounded Warrior’s Children’s Christmas party. We raised $470 plus a $50 gift card from Walgreens. Thanks to him we were able to buy toys at two for one prices plus an additional 15 percent off. Thanks to Walgreens (Chris), we were able to buy 60 toys, over 100 candy canes, batteries for the toys, and had money left over for the Wounded Warriors’ Fund.

Chris is doing all he can to help make Walgreens a part of Fallbrook. Please don’t judge them by this one incident about the towed cars.
