If your kids are anything like mine, you’ve likely heard every excuse you could think of as to why your darling NEEDS a Slurpee. Well why not surprise them this Friday Sept 19th with a Large sized Slurpee and pay as much or as little as you like. Say what? That right! On the 19th it is Slurpee Name-Your-Price Day at 7-Eleven stores across Canada with 100% of what you pay going directly to Foods Banks Canada…every single nickel!!
People all over Canada, over 800,000 of them, are assisted by food banks every.month. Over 1/3 of those people are youth and children. Those are staggering numbers and helping has never been easier. For the actual retail price of a large Slurpee at 7-Eleven, $1.99, you can help to share 14 meals! And for just a loonie you can feed someone breakfast for an entire week. A week for a buck! There’s no reason to not stop in!
Not a fan of the sugar rush? Make a donation anyways! Every cent matters when it comes to feeding those in need.
