VWS Gift Card Program Update

Gift Cards – Whole Foods and early delivery

I really can’t say THANKS! enough to everyone that got involved with the gift cards for February.  If you didn’t manage to get your form in on time, drop one off to Ronaye or Sarah for a March order.  Or order for March to May so you’re all set for the remainder of the school year.

I did hear back from Whole Foods this week and they were blown away by our support but unfortunately due to how their donation budgets work in Canada they can not sign on to our program monthly.  On the plus side, they did say they could do twice a year (plus I’ll keep working in the background to try to convince Whole Foods in Canada to set up a corporate program like they have in the USA).

For those who ordered for February, keep an eye on your emails next week as I am trying to get your gift cards delivered to you earlier than expected.

SPUD Fundraising – New ‘All Greens’ box

The SPUD team continue to be great to work with.  They are looking to improve the SPUD Fundraising program and asked for my feedback.  You can rest assured that I’ve mentioned all the great advice that you have given me over the past months.  I look forward to seeing how their program evolves.

One piece of feedback I gave them a couple of weeks ago (from a Grade 2 parent) was the suggestion of having an All Greens box – SPUD listened and it’s available for ordering this week!

Get great local, organic produce that has a 100% satisfaction guarantee.  Order online by Saturday for delivery to the school next Tuesday.  It’s really simple!  If collecting your box is an issue, reach out and I’ll see what I can arrange for you.
