How do I participate in the campaign supporting the Pediatric Department in Grande Prairie?

When you visit Grande Prairie Costco during the month of May and make a donation, your name will be written on our cute little penguin’s belly. These adorable penguins will be displayed in creative ways around the Costco Warehouse. Your donations stay local and improve the lives of children and their families in our region.

Thank you for supporting healthcare in your community!
