We have a pain free fundraiser happening at Temple Shalom.  For the vendors you normally would use anyway, you buy gift cards through the temple for the amounts you would likely be spending... additional cost to you... ZERO!

We are ordering every two months so if  you find this an easy way to help out, you can order again at the end of October.

The vendors give a percentage of the cards bought to Temple Shalom. You get to spend 100% of what you pay for the cards and there is no expiry date on the cards.
If we order $4400 worth of cards, we pay nothing for shipping and handling. I will be submitting the order on Friday this week and we are short $1500 in orders... if you shop at Safeway, Superstore, Sobeys or Walmart for  your groceries, please purchase cards for what you spend in a month or even for a week... it would be really appreciated. Even a purchase of $50 or $100 would help. [I spend that much on Starbucks cards for the 2 months before our next order!]
We have had additional unbudgeted  costs due to the basement's flooding and the need to replace our sound system and this is one way you can help out, at no cost to you!
Use this link to see what cards are available and then email me indicating what you want.
