A Willoughby business and local non-profit group are banning together to learn the art of coupon clipping and raise money for senior citizen causes.
Current RSVP volunteers, prospective volunteers, and all those interested in saving money are invited to RSVP of Lake County’s special fundraiser at Chick-fil-A at 35441 Euclid Ave. in Willoughby, on Wednesday, June 27 from 9 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
RSVP, Lake County’s organization that matches 55 and older volunteers to non-profit agencies, will receive 15% of the amount paid for all food ordered during that time.
The big money-saving feature of the fundraiser is a talk at 9:15 by “Joe, the Coupon Guy,” who has spoken to civic groups for years on using coupons and discounts to save money. Joe himself regularly saves 70-80% on his groceries, and he will share his secrets at the fundraiser. Attendees will also be able to chance a dollar on the “Spin the Wheel” for the opportunity for free menu items on their next visit to Chick-fil-A.
“This is a new venture for RSVP, but we have already had some great initial response,” said Cristen Kane, director of RSVP of Lake County.” Not only is
this a great way to make new friends and greet old friends, but it also will help RSVP’s budget, as well as the household budgets of those who listen to Coupon Joe.”
Reservations are required for Joe the Coupon Guy’s talk at 9:15 a.m. Call the RSVP office at 440-269-3015 ON OR BEFORE JUNE 18 to reserve a spot.
