March is Epilepsy Awareness Month

A list of places selling various food and non-food items to support the campaign

As we get into the swing of March and anxiously await the arrival of spring, it’s time to support Epilepsy Awareness Month by purchasing the various sweets and other food, purple flowers, spa services, and purple ribbons which are perfect for coat lapels and such.

Throughout the month Quesnel Bakery, which has partnered with eQuesnel for the entire five-year fundraising effort, will be selling its signature purple cookies as well as a new item, old-fashioned sour cream donuts for epilepsy, at the bakery – as well as epilpsy bracelets and seizure first aid cards.

Paradise Spa is also supporting epilepsy, with purple gel manicures and pedicures.

Fraserview Pharmacy will have purple ribbons for epilepsy for a donation.

Beginning March 16, Bliss will be serving Bliss in a Bowl from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. On March 23, College of New Caledonia students and staff will be selling signature purple cookies. From March 23 to 27, Safeway will have a beautfiul selection of purple flowers and Shopper Drug Mart will also be selling the signature purple cookies.

During that same week, Rocky’s & Wright Choice Automotive will have the signature purple cookies as well as a new item for Epilepsy Awareness Month, old-fashioned Donuts for Epilepsy.

Wrapping up the month, volunteers will be in the downtown B.C. Liquor Store on March 23 and 30. And finally, on March 30, they will be in Spirit Square selling signature cookies and donuts for Epilipsy.
