VANCOUVER, CANADA, SEPTEMBER 12, 2019 - 7-Eleven Canada presents the return of Name Your Price Day on Thursday, September 19, 2019. For one day only, all day and night, Canadians can name their price for a large Slurpee with 100% of the proceeds going to Food Banks Canada.
Food Banks Canada is a national organization that works in partnership with the food banking network across Canada to relieve and prevent hunger amongst Canadians living with food insecurity. According to Food Banks Canada, 35% of those relying on food banks nationally are children.
On Name Your Price Day, every $1.00 donated will allow Food Banks Canada to provide three meals to children and adults in need from BC to Ontario through provincial associations, affiliate food banks, and local food agencies. Funds raised will support food banks in local communities.
“Donors enable our organization to provide services and support through local food banks to Canadians in need. We are grateful for 7-Eleven Canada and thank their customers for their support of our work through Name Your Price Day!” Chris Hatch, Chief Executive Officer, Food Banks Canada.
On Name Your Price Day, the simple act of purchasing a Slurpee Drink can impact the lives of so many who are not as fortunate. Name Your Price Day gives those who are able to treat themselves to a Slurpee the opportunity to make a difference in their community.
“Name Your Price Day is not only about raising awareness about the thousands of Canadians who rely on food banks each month, but also enabling our Slurpee fans to make a difference with their Slurpee purchase. Every donation makes a difference. We’ve seen donations over $20 for a Slurpee in the spirit of supporting those in need.” says Norman Hower, Vice President and General Manager of 7-Eleven Canada.
All 7-Eleven Canada stores will be participating in Name Your Price Day on Thursday, September 19, 2019, starting at 12:01 AM. Large Slurpee Drinks are the participating size and a minimum $0.10 donation is required. 7-Eleven Canada 7REWARDS members will receive 200 bonus points and a cup towards their 7th cup free when they scan their app and Large Slurpee cup.
Participants are encouraged to share their donation amount along with a photo of their Slurpee on social media using #NAMEYOURPRICE and tagging @7elevencanada and @slurpeecanada. For more information about Name Your Price Day, visit https://slurpee.ca/nypd.
