What is it?
It's a way for you to donate your points to a favourite charity. Then the Overwaitea Food Group will match your contribution, meaning the charity receives twice as much.
How does it work?
Just donate your More Rewards points in increments of 1,000 to one of 3 charities (1 regional, 2 local) supported by your store.
For each 1,000 points donated to charity, the Overwaitea Food Group will provide $1 plus a matching $1 for a total of $2*.
For example, if 100 people each give 1,000 points to a charity, that would add up to a donation of $200. Simply advise any cashier at an Overwaitea Food Group location that you want to make a donation.
What organizations can apply and how?
Any organization that has strong roots in the community and has a specific goal or objective in mind may apply.
Qualifying organizations include schools, food banks, churches, teams, or bands. All interested parties must obtain an information package from their Overwaitea Food Group store and apply in writing to the store manager.
Only 2 local programs can be designated by each store at any given time, plus regional charity selected by the Overwaitea Food Group.
Over the years, the Overwaitea Food Group has selected the 3 regional Children's Hospitals in B.C. and Alberta to be the major benefactors of our charitable efforts. We are pleased to continue this tradition by designating the local Children's Hospital as our Regional charity.
