Donate at the Grocery Store
Grocery Shop AND Support VBIS!
You can support the Victoria Brain Injury Society by using a Thrifty Foods Smile Card to purchase your groceries. This program is a great way to support our society with no cost to you!
Please drop by our office to pick up a dedicated card. Only cards picked up from our office will raise money for the Victoria Brain Injury Society.
Here’s How It Works:
1. When you are at any Thrifty Foods store, before the cashier starts to ring your groceries through, "load" your card (by cash, bank card or credit card).
2. The amount you load is up to you - some people estimate their purchase and put on that amount...others just put $50, $100, $200, etc. Any unspent money stays on your card for next time.
3. Each time you shop, you simply present your card to the cashier to pay for your groceries. The Victoria Brain Injury Society receives a percentage of the total "loaded" on your card each month from Thrifty Foods.
This is a great way to budget and your till receipt tells you how much you have left on your card after each purchase.
It is also makes a great gift!
