Bartell Drugs, Oberto team to fundraise for Seattle Children’s Hospital
SEATTLE — Bartell Drugs is teaming up with fellow Washington-based company Oberto Beef Jerky to help benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital. Throughout October, for every bag of Oberto jerky purchased at a Bartell Drugs location, a donation will be made to the hospital.
“Regardless of a family’s ability to pay, Seattle Children’s delivers world-class care and is recognized as one of the top children’s hospitals in the U.S.,” Bartell Drugs President and CEO Brian Unmacht said. “This collaborative fundraising effort focuses on supporting the important healthcare role that Seattle Children’s plays in our region.”
Bartell locations will feature promotional materials in-store and in advertisements for the rest of October, according to the company. Bartell and Oberto expect for their total contribution, to be presented to the hospital president by executives from both companies, to be around $25,000.
