Walgreens Honors Giffords With Special Training Day

  • March 17, 2011
Walgreens says it will sponsor American Red Cross life saving training at more than 100 stores around the country this weekend, in an event called the "Gabrielle Giffords Honorary Save-a-Life Saturday."

The Arizona Congressman was shot in January in a Tucson shopping plaza that contained a Walgreens. "Some of our health care professionals saw firsthand that day the value of knowing CPR," the Deerfield, Ill.-based drug chain says in its release. "Every person who is CPR-trained is a potential life-saver 365 days a year. This is invaluable and important training that we're proud to help provide in partnership with the American Red Cross and in honor of Rep. Giffords as she continues her recovery."
