You and Free From Market Give
Charities struggle these days, so Free From Market is beginning a new charitable initiative. During the month of October, in honor of Celiac Disease Awareness Month, you may choose to direct the proceeds of your Frequent Shopper Rewards to the local chapters of the Celiac Sprue Association and the Gluten Intolerance Group. Cash will accumulate in the jar on the counter, and at the end of the month we will split it between the two advocacy groups. Alternatively, you may apply your rewards to purchases, as always. If we work together, this can raise many $100s for each group.
