There are two ways that you can get involved:
Grocery Card Program
OMRA raises funds for our activities primarily through our grocery card program in conjunction with local congregations and groups of friends. We are always looking for new groups and individuals to get involved!
Here is how the grocery card program works: OMRA buys grocery cards from Farm Boy, Metro and Loblaws. Grocery cards come in denominations of $50 and $100. The cards are sold to you at face value. So if you spend $100, you get $100 worth of grocery cards. You don’t pay any extra for your groceries. However, Farm Boy, Metro and Loblaws each pay between 4% and 5% of the value of the grocery cards to OMRA, which is how it supports its programs.
If you are interested in selling OMRA grocery cards to your own congregation or group, please feel free to contact us for more details.
