Deadline today to order Stop & Shop gift cards to benefit shelter pets

An order of Stop & Shop gift-cards will be put through on Friday, Nov. 29, to benefit the Trumbull Animal Group (TAG). TAG receives 5% of the amount of gift-cards purchased, which helps defray costs of medical bills for the animals at the Trumbull Animal Shelter.

When the gift-cards have been received by TAG, the purchaser will receive an e-mail notification that the gift card can be picked up at the Trumbull Animal Shelter, 324 Church Hill Road and payment is made at that time. Checks should be made out to TAG.

Also, when you use the Stop & Shop gift card, you will still receive your gas points as long as you scan your Stop & Shop card.

This will be the last order of 2013 so if you plan on doing a lot of holiday grocery shopping, this would be a great idea for you.
