Dear Parents and Staff,
“The Gift Card Program” is back!!! This is an opportunity for us to help our school.
In case it’s new to you or you need a refresher, Hawthorn acquires gift cards for major retailers at a discount price. You as Hawthorn parents buy the gift cards from Hawthorn at their face value, redeem them at that same value, and Hawthorn keeps the difference as fundraising revenue. Most of the cards have no expiry dates. See the order form below for the list of retailers.
The beauty of this program is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work, earning money for Hawthorn without spending anything additional, and providing an alternative that involves no selling of unwanted items.
Gift cards are ideal for Christmas, birthday and employee gifts. We can also use them for just about any purchase including recurring expenses such as food, gas, dining out, clothing, entertainment, furniture, building supplies, auto repair, and much more.
This is a simple and effective fundraising program and Hawthorn counts on your participation!
The deadline to submit your order(s) is on Monday, December 4, 2023.
Please fill out the form, that you can download below, and return it with your payment at the front office on or before the deadline. Payments may be submitted by cash at the front desk, cheque made payable to Hawthorn School for Girls, or e-transfer to email@example.com (password: hawthorn; note: “Gift Cards”).
To facilitate the process, we are sending a printed copy of the order form with your child(ren) today.
Thanks for your support!
