Shop For a New Cat


The SAH Volunteer Association (SAHVA) recently made a commitment to fundraise $200,000.00, over the next three years, to assist the SAH Foundation achieve their goal of raising $1.9 million for the purchase of a new CT Scanner for SAH. The addition of a CT Scanner to Sault Area Hospital is important to the timely and convenient medical care being
provided in our community and surrounding areas.

Over the next three years the SAHVA will be holding fundraising events within our community and surrounding areas. By supporting these fundraising events and initiatives, you will be assisting in the purchase of leading-edge medical equipment which allows the medical professionals of our community hospital to continue to provide excellent care, close to home.

We are excited to let the community know about our current event, FundScrip, an
innovative program that lets the SAHVA earn cash rebates based on things that the
citizens of Sault Ste. Marie buy everyday. Each month we all spend hundreds of dollars
for things like food, gas, clothing, pharmacy, restaurants, electronics, home renovations,
department stores pruchases, etc. All you have to do to help SAHVA earn cash rebates
is to pay for some or all of your purchases using GIFT CARDS bought at face value
from FundScrip and a percentage of every gift card purchased is rebated to the
SAHVA’s fundraising campaign.

The gift cards themselves come from some of Canada’s largest retailers and are the
same cards you would purchase if you went directly to our local retailers to purchase
them. They are sold at face value, but earn rebates ranging from 2% – 10% of the
purchase price of the gift card. If you are thinking about giving gift cards this holiday
season, why not join our campaign and order your gift cards through FundScrip and at
the same time help our hospital purchase a new CT Scanner?

To order your gift cards, visit the FundScrip website at and click on
the “Support Your Group” button located on the top right hand corner and complete the
required registration form. The SAHVA’s group invitation code is G73QLQ. Now you
are ready to login, place orders for your gift cards and start supporting the SAHVA’s
$200,000.00 Campaign and the purchase of a new CT Scanner.

The Sault Area Hospital Volunteer Association (SAHVA) is a nonprofit organization
