Joyful Fundraising

AJN’s fundraising campaigns aim to further support our goal of providing the opportunity to sing to anyone who wishes to do so. Our teams of volunteers work hard to plan fundraising activities that are fun and to come up with events and products that are enjoyable and useful. Some fundraisers, like grocery card sales, are ongoing, alongside other date specific campaigns like Joyful Cornerstore, Purdys chocolates, Wine Tastings, annual Garage Sale and more. Check below for what’s coming up next!

Grocery Cards

We all have to buy groceries, so it couldn’t be easier to support A Joyful Noise than by buying gift cards for your favorite stores through our monthly campaigns. Choose from Safeway/Sobeys, Superstore, Save-On Foods, Italian Centre and Freson Bros in $25, $50 and $100 denominations.

The next order deadline will be April 19. Pickup will be the week of April 29. You will receive an email regarding pickup closer to the date.

Bottle Drive

We welcome donations of your bottle and drink container refunds. Bring your bottles to Millwoods Bottle Depot at 2830 Parsons Road NW . You don’t even need to go into the main building – instead, use “Quick Drop” by driving up to the east side of the building. Depending on the weather, you may stop at the Quick Drop tent or  follow the signage by the overhead door and you will be helped there. Let the staff at the Quick Drop area know that your refund should go to the “Joyful Noise” account.
