Raising Money for Canuck Place Childrens Hospise

Saturday, Sept 28th – Oct 14th
Both Stong’s Locations

We will be collecting donations for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice from Sept 28 – Oct 14. Our goal this year is to raise $11,000 which will cover two months of meals for the families during their stay.

Canuck Place is a caring, innovative children’s hospice service that fully embraces the life of each child and family. A place of comfort and compassion where children can experience the simple joy of being a child, and families can cherish each moment together. All care is provided to families at no cost.

Trick or Treat in Dunbar Village

Saturday, October 26th from 2-6PM
Stong’s Market on Dunbar

Join us for the annual Trick or Treat event in the streets of Dunbar Village. Activities will take place on Dunbar Street between 27th and 29th Avenues. There will be live music, Halloween craft demonstrations, pumpkin bowling, and a witches hat ring-toss. Trick or treating will take place from 3-5PM at the various businesses.

Stong’s Market will also have complimentary face painting, balloons, and hot chocolate at our Dunbar location. We hope you can join us. It’s going to be spook-tacular!


Stong’s believes in being a good neighbour. Our support of local communities and charities dates back to the first store opened by Carson Stong in 1931.

Mr. Stong’s generosity and leadership have served as the foundation of Stong’s commitment to the community. That involvement has earned us a reputation of being more than just the local grocer. Stong’s proudly supports our local community focusing on our Children’s Schools, Educational & Sports Programs as well as our local Community Organizations & Festivals, through the donation of products and services for fundraising events.

Online School Rebate Program

For all parents/faculty that spend money online at express.stongs.com, Stong’s can donate 4% of the orders back to the PAC. The more parents that participate, the higher the revenue will be generated for the school. I.e. For every $1000 spent, $40 will be donated to the PAC. Just choose your school during the checkout process and we will take care of the rest!

Stong’s Market is providing an exciting opportunity for parents to raise money for their children’s school through their weekly grocery purchases. We at Stong’s feel confident that this is an excellent opportunity to raise much needed funds for the school and ultimately our children.
