Our Team Story
With over 6.5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease, nearly every family in the US will face the disease in some way and must take on the hardships it produces. Within the Astrup Companies family of businesses, we continually see the impact of the disease through our relationships with patients and coworkers.
Eight years ago, the impact of Alzheimer’s struck our company at its core. Leonard Astrup, founder of Sterling Drug, which has evolved into Astrup Companies, passed away in 2014 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
In Leonard’s memory, our community pharmacy locations have been dedicating the month of June to Alzheimer’s fundraising efforts since 2016. Thanks to the hard work of our employees, the overwhelming generosity of our patients and customers, and matching funds from the Astrup Family Foundation, Sterling pharmacies have donated $210,500 over the past six years!
This year, Astrup Companies is celebrating its 70th anniversary. To celebrate the anniversary and honor the legacy of Leonard and everyone who’s helped serve our communities throughout the last 70 years, we are kicking our fundraising efforts up a notch!
Each of the Astrup Companies businesses will be joining the fundraising fun. Sterling Long Term Care Pharmacy, Sterling Specialty Pharmacy, and Smart-Fill—along with our corporate office—will be joining our community pharmacies this June as they raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association.
We are also aiming for a lofty goal. The Astrup Family Foundation has agreed to match up to $35,000!
Please join us as we work to put an end to Alzheimer’s.
