Thrifty’s Smile Card: We’re Good to Go!

Thrifty Foods has once again approved Smile Card funding for Congregation Emanu-El.  Our goal this year:  help pay travel costs for our Hebrew school students who will be participating in the spring 2015 National Bible Contest.

Each time your Smile Card is used to buy groceries, Congregation Emanu-El receives a 5% rebate on your purchase.  The more we use our cards, the bigger the benefit.  Let’s help our kids get to the contest!
Need a card – for you or someone else in your family?  Please call the synagogue office at 250-382-0615.
