Get a Free Fairway Market Card From VGS Today

Published on 6/10/2022


Please consider helping VGS when you shop for groceries at Fairway Market stores.

VGS is now enrolled in the Fairway Market Community Card program.  It's easy for members and non-members alike to participate:

  • Drop in to the VGS Genealogy Learning and Research Centre or phone 250-360-2808 and ask us to mail you a FREE Fairway Market Card.  Only cards obtained from the VGS Centre will benefit VGS.
  • Go to any one of the 10 Fairway Market locations: Victoria and Saanich (4 stores), Oak Bay, Sidney, Brentwood Bay, Langford (2 stores) and Nanaimo.
  • Preload your card with any amount you wish BEFORE you start to put your order through.  You can spend 100% of the funds loaded (you lose nothing).
  • Reload your card as needed.
Fairway Market donates 5% of all amounts loaded onto cards to VGS on a quarterly basis.

This is a much needed fundraiser for us, as it replaces the discontinued Thrifty's Smile Card program.  VGS will use funds received from Fairways Market to provide access to online Ancestry and FindMyPast at our VGS Centre.

We truly appreciate your support of VGS.
