Thrifty Foods Smile Card Program

Our Smile Card Fundraising Program allows qualifying organizations to raise funds by shopping with Thrifty Foods. The system is simple: Thrifty Foods will donate an amount equal to 5% of the dollars you load on to your pre-assigned Smile Card to the group you are supporting. Extra support in your organization’s pocket is as easy as that!

Obtain your Thrifty Smile Card from the front desk of the James Bay community centre, the card is linked to our account. By joining the Thrifty Foods Smile Card Program, your contribution will assist in supporting the following program.

Thrifty Foods Munch Cart program.

This in school program provides a volunteer opportunity for grade 4 and 5 students to sell a snack to fellow students at morning recess.  Students are asked to keep track of the items sold, balance a small float, and make correct change.  In addition to providing an opportunity for students to practice basic math skills in a very real setting, the program allows students to purchase any item for .25 cents. By using your smile card when purchasing your groceries, it will enable us to provide these nutritious snacks at a subsidized rate for our students and to provide free fruit as a daily option.

We thank you for your continued support of our students here at the James Bay Community School.  To our existing card holders, thank you so much for your support over the past 5 years.

Your support is greatly appreciated
