Did you know that when you send a SPUD gift certificate over $100, you’re also sending a hot meal to someone who needs it, AND receiving a SPUD credit for yourself?
Yep, this holiday season, one SPUD gift certificate sends a gift in three different directions. Here’s how it works:
- When you shop for a $100 gift certificate, you’ll get a bonus $10 SPUD credit, and we’ll give one hot meal.
- When you shop for a $150 gift certificate, you’ll get a bonus $15 SPUD credit, and we’ll give two hot meals.
- When you shop $200 or more, you’ll get a bonus $25 SPUD credit, and we’ll give three hot meals.
And where are these hot meals going?
We’re incredibly proud to report that so far, through this year’s holiday gift certificate give back program, we have been able to buy over 100 hot meals for those less fortunate in BC and Alberta – and we’re not even halfway through December!
SPUD delivers to multiple neighbourhoods in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, and Edmonton, and so we’ve partnered with local community organizations in each of these areas to sponsor through our hot meal gift certificate program.
Here’s a little bit about each of these fantastic organizations.
Vancouver’s Union Gospel Mission
The Union Gospel Mission works to offer restoration to men, women, and children who are dealing with poverty and addiction issues. With a concentration on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside Community, the UGM offers services such as hot meals, shelter, life recovery programs, education, job preparation, and affordable housing.
Victoria’s Our Place Society
The Our Place Society offers a sense of belonging to Greater Victoria’s most vulnerable poor, disadvantaged, and homeless citizens. They provide a home, nourishment, and hope through a variety of services including serving over 1600 meals per day, housing, health and wellness, education, haircuts, practical care, and more!
Calgary’s Inn From The Cold
For almost twenty Years, Inn from the Cold has operated as an agency of last resort for those children and their families who find themselves with no place to go. They go far beyond the provision of basic needs and offer shelter, sanctuary and healing to assist homeless children and their families achieve independence. Their door is open 24/7, 365 days a year and they turn no family away.
Edmonton’s The Bissell Centre
The vision of the Bissell Centre is to eliminate poverty in the Edmonton community, and is guided by a passionate concern for the dignity and well-being of each individual. Their mission is to empower individuals to rise out of poverty, to help families provide the care and support vital to a child’s development, and to provide support to help people become connected to their community.
The SPUD gift certificate isn’t your average gift, it spreads the gift of health, choice, and holiday cheer around, helping to bring healthy food to as many people as possible. The organizations we’ve chosen to work with are dedicated to strengthening our communities, and we’re thankful for our customers who share our desire to help out our neighbours whenever we can.
You can help support their cause this holiday, while getting your Christmas shopping done, while sitting at your computer, and while getting a SPUD credit yourself! Just head over to our gift certificate page, fill in yours and the recipient’s information, and you’re done!
Happy holidays, everyone!
