eegee’s 20th Annual 'Coupon Card' campaign benefits SACASA | Community Spirit
Last month, eegee's announced that the beneficiary of the 20th anniversary coupon card program in June 2012 is The Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault, a member of Arizona’s Children Association family of agencies.
Every year during the month of June, eegee's customers get an opportunity to support a local not-for-profit organization. In appreciation of each $7 donation a customer makes, eegee's gives the customer a coupon booklet valued at up to $72.
The Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault (SACASA) offers a wide-range of services that extend to both primary and secondary victims and survivors of recent and past sexual assault. In addition, SACASA implements awareness and prevention programs in schools throughout Southern Arizona.
For more than 40 years, eegee's has set an example to the community, their employees and customers in the area of social and environmental responsibility. This year celebrates the 20th year of the coupon card program.
eegee’s President Tom O'Connor stated, "We're proud to celebrate 20 years of the coupon card program. Especially during these challenging economic times, we encourage our customers to support the organizations that are helping the underserved around us. SACASA's work with the silent casualties of violence is necessary to move a healthy society forward.”
“We’re thrilled that SACASA has been chosen for this campaign,” said Michael Coughlin, Arizona’s Children Association and family of agencies president and CEO, “eegee’s has gone above and beyond to support their local community and we greatly appreciate their commitment to making a difference.”
