VWS Gift Card Program Update

New Store in 2016

I’m excited to announce that Whole Foods have signed on to do a trial month in our gift card program! They haven’t been involved with gift card fundraising before so they want to see how it goes before deciding whether they can commit to teaming up with us on an ongoing basis. For our best chance of getting them to continue with us let’s rally together and show them our support by placing orders!

Whole Foods cards will be available for ordering when we return from the break – with delivery to you in February.

Stay tuned in the New Year for (hopefully) the addition of a North Shore independent grocer.

How are we Going?

On average we’ve had about 10% of families in the school take part in the grocery programs. With this level of involvement we’ve raised $1165 so far. Imagine if everyone was involved!

Please help to spread the word within the school, but also amongst your family and friends. The more people involved, the more funds will we have to put towards initiatives for our children. I’ll have more information on the exact distribution of funds in the New Year.

SPUD Fundraising

SPUD Fundraising is finished for 2015, but orders will resume the first week back at school with the first delivery in the second week.

Grocery Store Gift Cards

January orders are now closed. I will have new order forms available in the first week of school that will cover the remainder of the school year.

Important Dates

  • Friday 1 January – Payments for January gift cards will be deducted.

Thanks again to all those who have supported the program so far! It is much appreciated.

Happy holidays!
