WHAT TO DO WITH USED GIFT CARDS?

You may also place then in a small box on the Visitors table beside the photocopier room for those who would prefer to leave their old cards at church.  Mary Anna Williams will ensure they are dropped off at the Town Centre.   The program is run by Terracycle.ca.  If you have any questions please speak to Mary Anna.
