SmartCell Sudbury & industry partners team up and tech up in support of Elgin Street Mission

As the Greater Sudbury Cubs wrap up their regular season, the SmartCell Sudbury #OneGoalOneMealOneMission campaign is coming to an end.

At the beginning of the season, SmartCell Communications pledged to make a ten dollar donation to Elgin Street Mission for every Cub’s goal scored on home ice and recently, the campaign received a surprising boost from SmartCell’s community partners. “Unbeknownst to us, our industry partners SWAT Media Group, Incapture and the Sudbury Cubs Care Program are now matching that donation,” explains SmartCell Communications Director of Marketing Carly Comtois.

Once the home ice goals have been tallied and the final donation amount is determined, the partners will present a cheque to the Elgin Street Mission during an upcoming Cubs playoff game. And while this signifies the end of the years’ giving campaign, SmartCell Sudbury and its partners will continue to support the Mission through a new online giving platform.

Introducing Mission Express

In collaboration with Incapture and SWAT Media Group, and proudly supported by the Cathie Comtois Benevolent Fund, SmartCell is helping to simplify food donations via their newly developed Express Food Donation Program.  Donors can now use the online grocery delivery service Instacart and give to the Mission without leaving the comfort of home. Then, in under an hour, Instacart will arrange for the pick-up and delivery of the food items that you have purchased.

Giving to the Mission is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Log in or sign up for a free Instacart Account
  2. Shop for food essentials for the Elgin Street Mission and check-out
  3. Your order is delivered right to the Mission. Be sure to specify delivery instructions (344 Elgin Street in the Samarian Centre. Go to back of building via alley & ring the doorbell for Elgin Street Mission)

Mission Express makes it easier than ever for donors to provide immediate support and meet those areas of greatest need, says Comtois.

“The reason we launched this program is not just for citizens of Greater Sudbury. People everywhere are now able to donate and arrange delivery to the Mission, with a press of the button. And to ensure the contributions are as meaningful as possible, the mission posts a list of its biggest needs on social media every Monday. Donors can consult that list and help the mission better plan its meals, using its resources more efficiently.”
