Loblaws Card Program
See update below
As most of you will know from news reports Loblaws has overcharged customers for bread products for several years and has now offered a $25 voucher to all eligible Canadians. The executive of the Sauble & Area Men's Club has made the suggestion that club members be asked to consider a plan that would benefit our local food bank greatly and be in keeping with our club's purpose of assisting individuals and organizations in need.
Our suggestion is that all of our club members apply for the $25 voucher from Loblaws and that we donate all the vouchers to the Wiarton Food Bank. By taking just a few minutes of our time we could raise in the area of $4,000 to $5,000 if all our members participated. An even better idea is to use the voucher yourself and donate he $25 to the Food Bank and receive a receipt for income tax purposes.
The program is already underway and vouchers will be issued to eligible persons. We are suggesting that when you apply and receive your voucher that you hold onto it and bring it to our Tuesday, April 24th dinner meeting where we will present all the vouchers to a representative of the Wiarton Food Bank.
It is simple to apply. Just click on Loblaws Card Program and complete the application. Even better, encourage everyone you know to do the same. Imagine what a difference we can make!
IMPORTANT! be sure to activate the card when you receive it. The card is of no value until it is activated.
Thanks for your consideration of this fundraiser.

We have more to come in yet and Don Riddell or any other executive member will gladly take your contribution. As a second drop off centre the Sauble Beach United Church has also collected over $300 dollars in cards or cheques. Many thanks for donating your gift cards to the Food Bank.
