  • Oshawa Centre’s Gift Card Exchange Grants Life-Changing Wishes

2019-03

Make-A-Wish® Toronto & Central Ontario is pleased to be a beneficiary of Oshawa Centre’s Gift Card Exchange initiative. In January, the program gave shoppers an opportunity to trade unused gift cards for an Oshawa Centre gift card, which is valid at any store in the Oshawa Centre mall. The unused gift cards were then donated to Make-A-Wish Toronto & Central Ontario, which will help our wish granting team grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.

 

“We chose Make-A-Wish® as our charity partner because we’re passionate about creating memorable experiences and feel that the foundation allows us to provide these happy moments to those who need it most,” says Danielle Cini, Marketing Coordinator, Oshawa Centre.

 

Our mission delivery team will use the donated gift cards to purchase items for wishes– from room makeovers, to shopping sprees, and more, these gift cards will enhance the wish experience for many children.

 

“Donations like this increase our capacity to tailor wishes specifically to wish children’s ages and interests,” says Caley Ash, Manager, National Wish Program, Make-A-Wish® Canada. 

 

This initiative is a win-win for everyone involved. Customers and employees at the Oshawa Centre were happy to give back in this way.

 

Thank you, Oshawa Centre for helping us grant more life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses!
