Purchasing Gift or Grocery Cards

Thank You from a family for their grocery gift cards

Gift cards are another great way to support the Adopt-A-Family program in an easy and convenient way. We can pool gift cards together to support families who have not been 'adopted' out to a donor.


Here are the gift cards that are most needed at this time:

Please purchase in $25, $50 or $100 increments, unless otherwise indicated.

  • Department and Other Stores: Walmart, Winners, Shoppers Drug Mart, Canadian Tire, Giant Tiger, Amazon

  • For Teens: Stone Road Mall, Indigo, ITunes, EB Games, Dollar Stores

  • Toys Stores: Brighten Up* (Fergus & Erin), Simply Wonderful* (Guelph), Mastermind, Toys R Us

  • Restaurants & Fast Food ($10 - $25 increments): Tim Hortons, Subway, Harveys, other fast food restaurants

  • Grocery stores ($25 - $100 increments): Freshco-Sobeys, and Metro-Food Basics


 *Thank You to local toy stores, Brighten Up (Fergus & Erin) and Simply Wonderful (Guelph), for partnering with the Adopt-A-Family Program. When Donors purchase Gift Cards at Brighten Up or Simply Wonderful, the Adopt-A-Family program will add a 10% off coupon to send to the family along with the gift card(s).


Where and When to Delivery your Gift Cards:

  • Cards can be delivered to our Adopt-A-Family site at 69 Huron Street, just south of Elizabeth Street and East of Arthur Street. We are observing physical distancing and wearing masks while on site.

  • Alternatively, you can do a contact-less delivery to the Children’s Foundation main office at 87 Waterloo Avenue, near the corner of Glasgow. Look for the red brick house and there is parking behind. Envelopes can be left in the locked mailbox to the right of the front door.
