Buy a gift card - support the PAC!
Looking for that perfect holiday gift? Erase the worry, a gift card is always a perfect fit! Do you shop at Choices? Safeway? Stongs? If you purchase a gift card from us for your shopping, the PAC will get 4, 5 or even 7% of the value of your gift card. The PAC then puts the money back into projects and activities in the school that benefit our kids!
How does this magical fundraiser work? You’ll download an order form, choose what gift cards you’d like, tally it up and send the form with a cheque made out to Point Grey PAC into school with your child. They drop it at the office, we order the gift cards and deliver them to you in about a week!
We’ll be taking orders monthly to begin, we’ll put our first order in on Thursday November 22nd – orders due in by 10 am and your gift cards will be at the school office on Friday, November 30th at the end of the day. We’ll put another order in just in time for the holiday’s, orders due in Tuesday December 11th, 10am, delivered on Wednesday, December 20th end of the day. You will need an ID to pick up the order.
There are too many retailers to name, but some of those that are participating include London Drugs, Shell, Choices Market, Amazon.ca, Save-on-Foods, T&T Supermarkets, Tim Hortons, Starbucks and The Bay.
You’ll notice a percentage on the order sheet, that’s the percentage of the gift card that will go to the PAC – for example a $100 Choices gift card will raise 7% for the school or $7 or a $50 gift card to Starbucks will raise $2.50 for the school. It doesn’t seem like much, but it adds up. So why not pay for that coffee with a gift card purchased through the PAC.
Grade 11 Food Drive

Or you can send in a cheque made out to: Point Grey Secondary School – food drive. Receipts are available upon request for donations over $50 and will be sent out after the food drive ends in Mid-January. Cheques can be left in the school office or items can be brought to Room 316, Ms. Ehn’s room. If you have any questions please contact the PAC and we’ll forward your email on to the group.
