Fernie, BC – On November 21 SaveOn Foods in Cranbrook and Overwaitea Foods in Kimberley and Fernie launched their own special fundraiser to Help Light a Star for EKFH’s Starlite Campaign.

Since the launch customers have being generous by donating their More Rewards points with SaveOn & Overwaitea outlets matching 1,000 points for every 1,000 points donated equalling a $2.00 donation from the Overwaitea Food Group.

Although the program was to end on December 3, store managers from the 3 outlets are extending its support to January 2014.

“We are more than half way the to the goal of raising $5,000 and lighting a star so unanimously our stores in Fernie, Kimberley and Cranbrook agreed to extend campaign,” says Len Steenson , Branch Manager in Cranbrook.

To participate in the Help us Light a Star a customer simply has to redeem their More Rewards points at the customer service counter or directly through the till. Not enough points? No problem… donations are also gratefully accepted in-store with all donations being directed to the More Rewards points event.
