VWS Gift Card Program Update

Gift Cards

Last orders for the year are due next week!! If you don’t have an order form, you can pick one up from Reception or print your own from this link: Gift Card Order Form. If you have a recurring order and would like to increase your May order to cover the summer months you do not need to fill in a form, simply email me at vwsgiftcard@vws.ca

Early in March I did a small feature on Sprout Organic Market and Save-On-Foods. Before our end of year orders, I would like to present our last two supporters: President’s Choice and Donald’s Market.

I have had friends rave about Donald’s Market for years but having not lived in the area, I had not shopped there. Having now visited each month to collect gift cards, I can see what they were talking about. Donald’s has a great selection at great prices and 90% of their products are purchased from locally owned businesses so you know they are committed to community. They have a broad organic selection and for people with special dietary needs like me they make gluten-free shopping easy with a blue label next to the price tags of all relevant products. Donald’s Market now has four locations: Hastings Sunrise, Commercial Drive, Port Coquitlam and River Market New West.

The President’s Choice gift cards offer the broadest selection of stores and goods available through one card. This means that even if your preferred grocer is not on offer (and you would not like to switch), the Presidents Choice cards offer an alternative to getting involved in our fundraising as the cards can be used for purchasing clothing and homewares at Superstore or Joe Fresh. They can also be used for purchasing gas at the Superstore gas bars.

SPUD Fundraising

SPUD have been working on a new fundraising model with home delivery and it’s ready for us to try!.  The school will still receive 25% return on all organic produce boxes you order, but now you can combine your produce with ordering other products and it will all get delivered directly to your house or office!  You can also set up recurring orders for weekly, every two weeks or every four weeks to save you time.

Instead of going to our old fundraising link, you now go to SPUD.ca and follow these steps:

  1. Create an account if you do not already have one,
  2. Under the Home menu, click on SPUD Fundraising and select all the produce boxes you wish to order.  Then continue with any other ordering you wish to do through SPUD,
  3. When checking out, enter the promo code FUNDRAISING and select Vancouver Waldorf School,
  4. Your order will be delivered to your home or office,
  5. SPUD donates 25% of every produce box sold to the school!

North Vancouver receives free delivery on orders over $35 on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Order by 3pm the day before.  Check out SPUD.ca for delivery days to other areas.

Important Dates

  • Monday 18 April and Tuesday 19 April – April gift cards available for collection.
  • Mondays and Thursdays by 3pm – New cut-off days for North Vancouver SPUD orders.  Next day delivery.
  • Friday 22 April – Last date to order gift cards for May (i.e. last ones for this school year).
