SPUD Fundraising Giveaway

To kick-off our fundraising efforts in the new year, SPUD is awarding a $75 luxury gift basket to one HHBH Playschool family! Here’s how to participate:

  • For every organic produce box you buy in support of HHBH Playschool, you get ONE entry to win!
  • Earn entries from Feb 1 to Feb 28 – the winner will be announced in February
  • To purchase a produce box, sign up at SPUD.CA and visit spud.ca/fundraising to see all eligible boxes. Enter the promo code FUNDRAISING at checkout and select HHBH Playschool from the drop down list.

Remember, 25% of every box purchased gets donated back to us. The more donations you make to our Playschool (and the more tasty, organic produce you eat), the more chances to win!

Good luck!

In order to be a member on the Community Association board, you need to live in Briar Hill or Hounsfield Heights. Unfortunately, the current parent who has volunteered for this position does not meet this criteria.
