Kmart, a national sponsor of March for Babies, has raised over $79 million to support the mission of the March of Dimes over the last 26 years. Now they are going even further to help ensure babies are born healthy. From March 28 through May 1, Kmart Pharmacy customers can obtain folic acid when they fill their prescription at their local Kmart! Additionally, over-the-counter folic acid is available as part of this promotion. Limited quantities per store are available.
About 3,000 pregnancies in the U.S. are affected with neural (brain/spinal cord) defects each year. Up to 70% of those cases could be prevented if women consumed the proper amounts of Folic Acid before and continuing through pregnancy. For more information on folic acid and why it is important, head on over to our News Moms Need blog.
For more details on the giveaway, you can read our press release, ask your local Kmart Pharmacist or head on over to the Kmart Pharmacy Web site.
