National Council of Jewish Women, Louisville Section, with the support and resources of Wilson & Muir Bank & Trust Company, is once again striving to make the bargain hunters’ dreams come true with its annual Shopping Spree.
Shopping Spree cards offer purchasers 20 percent discounts at participating merchants during two two-week “20/20” periods in the coming year. Many of the merchants honor the card for a full year, August 15, 2014-August 20, 2015.
Cards are $30 and may be purchased by calling NCJW’s office, 458-5566. The discount periods are August 15-September 1, 2014 and February 27-March 15, 2015. Discounts offered outside the 20/20 weeks are set by the merchants.
Shopping Spree patrons will receive a credit card size plastic discount card with a booklet listing participating merchants. A list of Shopping Spree merchants can also be found in the ad on page 3, and NCJW maintains an updated list at www.ncjwlou.org.
The monies raised from the sale of the Shopping Spree cards will benefit several local community service agencies and projects including Keystone Learning Academy (formerly California Area Family Development Center), Chavurat Shalom, Community Coordinated Child Care (4Cs), Court Watch, ElderServe, Gilda’s Club Louisville, Jewish Family & Career Services, Jewish Resource Center, Maryhurst, Student Assistance Program, Suitcase Project and Israel Project.
The National Council of Jewish Women, Louisville Section, is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideas into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms.
