Other Ways to Donate
- The Maple Ridge Save-On-Foods stores give us great support through their donation program. You can donate Save-On-Foods receipts (from store #935 at ValleyFair Mall and store #928 at Westgate Mall) which we can redeem for such items as cleaning supplies and pet food. It doesn’t matter how old the receipts are. $10,000 in receipts gives us a $20.00 gift card. Donating your receipts to us does not affect your points balance at all. (Some people have thought that giving us their receipts allows us to use their points. It doesn’t.) Your points cannot be donated to us unless you expressly request to donate them. Save-On staff choose charities to receive donated points for three month periods. At the ValleyFair Mall Save-On, Katie’s Place is sometimes the charity they choose. If you’d like to donate them, you can ask when you’re paying for your groceries.
- When you take your bottles etc. to the Changes Recycling depot behind Save-On-Foods at ValleyFair Mall (only at the ValleyFair Mall location) you can have your funds from recycling you bring back donated to Katie’s Place.
- We can also redeem Canadian Tire money for cleaning supplies and other items we need for maintaining the shelter.
- You can also donate gift certificates from Zellers.
When you see our donation can on a cashier’s counter, the Save-On-Foods receipts and Canadian Tire money could be left in these cans. You can also drop receipts and certificates off at the shelter when you visit or mail them in. We’re very grateful for these contributions as they go a long way to keeping the shelter stocked with vital supplies.
We can also receive donations through the United Way. Donors can do payroll deduction or a lump sum. In the United Way workplace campaigns, there is a space at the bottom of the donation form in which to designate the charity of your choice. If Katie’s Place is your choice, write in our official name, Katie’s Place Domestic Animal Resource and Education Society, and our registration number, 86250 6037 RR0001. The registration number is key as there are many charities and the United Way only deals with those that have Revenue Canada registration.
NB – Katie’s Place does not solicit donations door to door.
Thank you for your support!
