NAMI and Jewel-Osco Are Building Awareness of Mental Illness

NAMI and Jewel-Osco are teaming up with the first in-store pharmacy and grocery cause-marketing campaign of this scale for NAMI! Osco pharmacists will be equipped to speak with customers about mental health and provide information about the local NAMI in their community. Customers will be asked to donate to NAMI at the grocery checkout, and there will be information at the pharmacy explaining why mental health services and outreach are important issues for everyone. The campaign will run from March 1st through March 14th at Jewel-Osco stores in Illinois, Northwest Indiana, and Clinton, Iowa.

This initiative will help raise the profile of NAMI affiliates in the communities they serve and offers the unique opportunity to connect the local pharmacist to NAMI while it educates the pharmacists about the power of NAMI and its programs.

Stop in at your local Jewel-Osco to show your appreciation for their support of NAMI – and maybe throw a few coins in the NAMI collection bucket when you check out!
