Gift Cards for Shelters

This year, the PA/PR Committee would like to ensure that all families in our community have an opportunity to celebrate Family Day without worrying about basic necessities. We are collecting Gift Cards to help both the mothers and children who reside in Shelters.

The average Canadian household receives over $500 in gift cards each year, many of which are never redeemed. If your wallet is filling up with them, you can donate them today!

Those who are forced to reside in shelters appreciate the opportunity to use these cards to choose items which meet their family’s needs. It provides them a sense of freedom when their lives are in crisis.

Once collected, all gift cards should be returned to the ETFO office by Wednesday, February 14. If you aren’t able to bring them to the office, contact Jeff at ETFO to make arrangements for pick up.

All Gift Card donations will be shared with Anselma House, Haven House, YWCA Emergency Shelter Services, Bridges and Monica Place. We recommend gift cards to stores that offer a variety of options: food, clothing, personal hygiene products, and basic home necessities.

Please discuss this project with your staff and consider helping this year. Our participation means a lot to many children and adults across the region at a very challenging time in their lives. If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Pelich.

    Gift cards can be purchased from the store that sells them. They are usually either loaded with a fixed dollar amount or given as a percentage of the total cost of items purchased. Gift cards used to be seen as just a method for retailers to boost their sales, but they have become increasingly popular among retailers and consumers. The number of gift cards distributed in the United States is estimated at $100 billion per year and continues to grow at 4-5% per year. Unlike coupons, gift cards do not expire or have any restrictions on when you must use them, and it is typical for the recipient to get cash back for unused money on their card.

    You can win a $1000 gift card at Loblaws supermarket stores by taking their official store opinion customer satisfaction survey at https://storeopinion-ca.page/ website. The Loblaws customers have to spend 10 minutes of their free time and answer their questions genuinely. The store opinion survey’s main aim is to get genuine customer feedback to better their store’s services and give the best experience to their customers. The survey winner will get a $1000 gift card for free.
