Snow's in Orleans supports the Homeless Prevention Council

Lower Cape store to participate in gift card program

The Homeless Prevention Council announces another community partner in their mission to prevent homelessness. Since 1991, Snow’s Home and Garden has supported HPC in many different ways. This year, their generosity is extended once again with their participation in the gift card program.

“We know that the Homeless Prevention Council serves an urgent need in our community. We are proud to be working with HPC in a newly established program within our store,” said Sid Snow, President and CEO. “They are a necessary part of the Lower/Outer Cape life, working to assist our neighbors stay in their homes and getting people back on the road to self-sufficiency. We hope that our employees and shoppers will support their programs by purchasing HPC gift cards at Snow’s.”

Through arrangements with several markets, and now CVS, the Homeless Prevention Council offers debit cards that can be used for anything in the participating markets. You receive the full value of the card for your purchases and HPC receives 5% of the card’s value. They are available in a variety of denominations for Shaw’s, Stop & Shop, Friends Marketplace, Phoenix Fruit and CVS. Since most residents shop at one or more of these stores, this program is a very simple way to help HPC with much needed revenue.

When you are shopping at Snow’s, you can now take the opportunity to help prevent homelessness at the same time. Visit their customer service desk and purchase HPC’s gift cards. You can use cash, check or credit card to buy the gift cards and the Homeless Prevention Council will receive 5% of your purchase. Snow’s is generously absorbing all credit card costs for cards purchased at Snow’s, so the full 5% will benefit HPC. The cards are also available at several local churches and organizations and from the HPC office at 14 Old Tote Road in Orleans, 508-255-9667.
