C Store Day

C Store Days will once again take place throughout Ontario. This year from August 15-22 with a special focus on Saturday, Aug. 22.

During this annual campaign, 100% of proceeds from convenience stores will go directly to the four children’s charity hospitals in Ontario.

  • Sick Kids’ Foundation
  • Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Foundation
  • Children’s Health Foundation
  • McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation

We are reaching out to encourage MPs and MPPs to tweet their support of the campaign. The OCSA remains partnered with the children’s hospitals and any convenience store can accept donations on their behalf during this time.

Whereas politicians have traditionally shown their support for small businesses on C Stores Day in-person, due to current conditions, this year’s C Stores Day will be virtual.

We encourage our industry to collect donations electronically at the cash while customers are paying with debit or credit cards.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Donna Montminy at (905) 845-9152.

Remember: “A little bit helps a lot”. Hopefully you will join us!
