Every year during the entire month of June, Eegee's provides customers the opportunity to support a local nonprofit organization. For a $7 donation to the nonprofit, you get a coupon card valued at up to $48 worth of discounts redeemable at any area Eegee's restaurant.

For 2014-2015, Eegee's selected two organizations whose services are vital to helping those in need in Southern Arizona. Interfaith Community Services is honored to be the prime beneficiary this year. If you purchase your coupon card directly from ICS, it keeps 100 percent of the proceeds. (ICS receives 75 percent of proceeds from coupon cards sold in Eegee's restaurants.)

Get your coupon card from ICS

It's a tasty and easy way to make a difference. To order these cards that will be available June 2, call 297-6049 ext. 228 or email mfitzgerald@icstucson.org. ICS will make sure you get your cards.

You can consign or reserve cards for your faith community, service club, business group or other gathering.

The coupon cards make a great gift for kids, grandkids, Father's Day or to remember someone special. Each donation will support ICS programs to assist adults and children experiencing financial hardship, as well as elderly and disabled neighbors in need. As more people in our community turn to ICS, this program will help ensure we can be here to help.

What can your support do for ICS?

One coupon card will help a person who is homeless or in financial distress with hygiene items (shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant).

Two coupon cards will help a recipient get a new identification card to qualify for a job.

Three coupon cards will help provide a recipient with a monthly bus pass to get to work or help a family who cannot afford a car to be able to visit the grocery store and go on other basic living errands.

Four coupon cards will help buy gas for the ICS van to pick up food.

Five coupon cards will help a recipient with a copay for a critically needed monthly prescription.

10 coupon cards will bless a low income, frail, and homebound senior with a month of delivered nutritious meals.

100 coupon cards will help provide the rent for a full month for a family of four to help them avoid homelessness.

Want to buy multiple cards but can't use them all yourself? Donate them back to ICS and we will gift them to families who can.

Faith communities and business owners: ICS welcomes the opportunity to have a table at your faith community or business to let the public know about this money-saving opportunity that will help so many people. Please call 297-6049 ext. 222 for more information.

Since 1985, Interfaith Community Services has pursued its mission to help Pima County seniors, disabled individuals and people in financial crisis achieve stable and independent lives. Thank you for your ongoing support of our work.
