CareGiver institute gets help from eegee’s fundraiserby Tucson Citizen on May. 06, 2009, under Family, Local, Taste
The CareGiver Training Institute will be this year’s recipient of the eegee’s 17th Annual Coupon Card.
During June, eegee’s customers can donate $5 to CareGiver and receive a coupon card good for 50 percent off purchases for the next 12 months, a potential savings of $72 over the course of the year. The promotion, started by eegee’s in 1992, has raised more than $1 million for local charities.
The not-for-profit institute educates compassionate, quality, certified caregivers and certified nursing assistants to work in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, hospice centers and private homes.
All expenses for the promotion are underwritten by eegee’s so that all funds raised this year, including change collected in coin canisters at eegee’s 21 locations, will go to the institute’s programs and services.
