  • Use your Thrifty Foods Smile Card (Please note: cards MUST be obtained through the Society not at the store AND you may use the Smile card that you already have if you have obtained it from the Society.) The First Open Heart Society has been approved to participate in the Smile Card Program for another year beginning May 5, 2011 through May 5, 2012. If you would like to request a Smile Card, please contact Susan at the First Open Heart Society office at 250-595-2123.

  • How to Use your Card:
    The card can be loaded before you shop with any amount you wish. The First Open Heart Society will receive 5% of your purchase. You will also receive points on your Sobey's/Thrifty Club Card. You, Thrifty Foods and the First Open Heart Society all benefit from this card. The card is also great for gift giving.
    Our current project, thanks to the Smile card Program, is to paint and replace all carpets throughout the Victoria Heart House.
