Pharmacy BC attends the South Vancouver Community Police Fundraiser

February 12th, 2016

We had a great time at this year’s annual Chinese New Year Fundraising Dinner for the South Vancouver Community Policing Centre! Bob Rai, Harpreet Rai, Vishal Trivedi, David Lee, Michelle Liu, and Simon Zhou were present in addition to several other special guests at the venerable Fraser Court Seafood Restaurant. We were honoured to meet not only such wonderful and supportive members of the community, but also our new Minister of Defence, Harjit Sajjan. We are looking forward to next year!

PharmacyBC/The Medicine Shoppe is committed to improving and supporting our communities and their health. That is why we have rolled out several innovative service programs, such as: ‘Pharmacy with Care’, where we provide a suite of medication services provided by professional nurses; HealthTab, which enables you to complete a number of routine health tests – such as blood glucose tests – right in our pharmacies and allows you to access your results on a mobile device; and our INSTI rapid HIV tests, offered for free to the community. For more information about these programs and our other services, please visit our website at:

The South Vancouver Community Policing Centre community crime prevention office is a place where community members and businesses can meet and work with the police, in a non-crisis environment, to address crime and safety concerns. Staffed almost entirely by volunteers, day to day activities include: coordination of police crime prevention programs such as Bike Patrol; participation in community projects such as clean-up campaigns, graffiti paint-outs, public awareness initiatives; and generally helping the public with non-emergency crime-related problems.
