Offering free goodies at a senior show is sure to attract attention. This year, Priscilla Hauser, who has worked at Apex since 2004, charmed the many seniors who attended the fair. She got to explain to the attendees all the benefits of working with Apex Pharmacy and Home Health Care Center. While she spoke to many existing customers, often they brought new faces to the booth who were introduced for the first time. It always makes her feel great when she hears about how much folks just love Apex Pharmacy and the sincere caring way they do business.
There were excellent speakers who talked about all the opportunities available to Veterans. Shows like this one are informative and fun. Priscilla never misses a chance to meet new people and tell them why they would enjoy the experience at Apex.

Jeans For A Good Cause
Apex Pharmacy and Home Health Care, earmarks the last Friday of every month as “Jeans Friday”. Did you know that each one of the staff members contribute $5.00 on that day just so they can wear their jeans. Then this money is collected for a good reason.
Every month, a different local cause is chosen to benefit from the collection. Employees share their suggestions. They often know of family and friends who are having a medical crisis and need help. Fundraising for these local needs brings the staff closer to philanthropic actions in their community and provides staff camaraderie.
Apex wants to help out. Share your thoughts when you come in for someone who needs a helping hand. Jewel Giorodano, a staff member for over 20 years, even collects bottles and cashes them in as part of the store donations.
At Apex, Jeans Day is a good day all around.
