Thrifty’s Smile Cards Can Help Us Serve You!

Have you heard of the Thriftys Smile Card Program?  This fantastic program helps SVSS and costs you nothing.

If you shop at Thriftys and use the Smile Card you get from us, 5% of the value of your purchases is returned to Saanich Volunteer Services to help purchase items for our volunteers and clients. 

Last year we purchased first aid kits for our drivers and swivel cushions to help clients move in and out of vehicles when being driven to appointments.smilecardgiftcards

Every little bit helps, so let us know if you would like a Smile Card. We will arrange to get one to you, or you can drop by our office and pick one up from Sandi, our Office Coordinator.

As always, we are grateful for your support!
