Handmade Hugs Society
How you can help us
What do we need?
What can you do:
Support our fundraising efforts by ...
Country Grocer Receipts
Saving your receipts from Country Grocer (Lake Cowichan). We receive cash-back which we use
to purchase items for special events.
Canadian Tire Money
Do you have extra Canadian Tire Money lying around in your wallet, car console, or drawers? Put it to good use! Handmade Hugs gratefully accepts Canadian Tire money. This 'money' is used to help us purchase the items not normally donated but still necessary like extension cords or tote storage bins.
Check with your friends, family, social groups, and clubs -- it's amazing how many people have Canadian Tire money lying around!
Thrifty Foods Smile Card
This program is a great way to support Handmade Hugs Society by doing something you're already doing -- shopping!
When you use a Smile Card to pay for your purchases at any Thrifty Foods location, 5% of the amount loaded on the card goes toward Handmade Hugs. You can get a Smile Card from any Director, at any event, or you can contact us through email and we will send you one via snail mail.
Island Return-It (Encorp)
Save your bottles and cans and return them to Encorp in Duncan. Ask to have the funds donated to Handmade Hugs Society. That’s it, easy-peasy.
Helping in any way goes a long way.
Or start your own
