How to easily donate your $25 Loblaw gift card to a local food bank

Jan 8 2018, 6:48 pm

This past December, Loblaws admitted to overcharging for the cost of some packaged bread products for more than 14 years.

In an attempt to make up for its wrongdoings, Loblaws announced that it would offer Canadian consumers a free $25 Loblaws gift card.

Starting today (January 8), Canadians are now eligible to register online for their $25 card, with registration staying open until May 8, 2018. And while the gift card is your chance to stock your cupboards, it’s also an opportunity to help those in need.

Rather than using the gift card yourself, you could easily put the $25 towards a good cause and donate it to a local food bank instead.

The card program is “expected to cost between $75 and $150 million depending on customer take-up.”

That’s a lot of dough for those in need.

So if you decide to donate your gift card, remember you must register by May 8. Once you receive it, you can simply drop it off at your nearest food bank.
