  • Stop and Shop Card Fundraiser

    We have a easy way for you to support our Chapter that won’t cost you a penny. Stop and Shop has a fundraising program for non-profit organizations. They sell us gift cards at a discounted rate and we sell them at face value. So, a $50 gift card costs you $50. You would already be spending that at the grocery store anyway, and Great South Bay Audubon makes a profit.

    Use these gift cards for purchasing anything at Stop and Shop, or give as gifts. There is no limit to how many you can purchase, no expiration date and no fees. You don't have to spend it all at once; you carry a balance over on the card. It really is that simple. Gift cards are available in $25 and $50 increments.

    If you are interested in participating in this program, please click here for an order form, or purchase them at any of our General Membership meetings. As always, we appreciate you support.
