Erwin’s has so enjoyed being woven into our community and appreciates the support of all our clients’ that we look for opportunities to help wherever we can.
Our Token program is our primary community service. We began the Token program in 2015 and are delighted with the way it has been received and supported.
Tokens are available at the bakery for purchase (sold at cost of product) and can be distributed to those in need either by you or left with us for distribution.
Purchased tokens left with us are distributed via ourselves, the local RCMP and City of Kamloops Bylaw Officers.
Recipients can redeem a token for one of our delicious Breakfast in a Bun.
Almost since our inception in 1972 we have supported our local Salvation Army and more recently, through the Salvation Army the Jubilee Urban Movement Program. We donate our unsold breads and buns for them to use and distribute as needed.
Two other Charities that we support on an ongoing basis are the Afternoon Auxiliary at Royal Inland Hospital and the ICCHA Wish Fund. Links to both organizations are below.
When possible we do support other community efforts and events. Please submit your request in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
We are delighted to introduce Erwin’s Token program
Many of our clients have found creative ways to allow us to be involved in their random acts of kindness – some give away their “Sandwich Preferred Client Card” when they are full, purchase for a stranger in line, or even pick up a gift card, or extra sandwich/treat to give away.
We wanted to take that a step forward. To find a way to make it very easy for those who want to assist others to have fresh, healthy food.
Which brings us to our token program. Simply purchase tokens at the bakery (or over the phone/e-mail) and then hand them out in lieu of cash to those asking for help. If you prefer you may leave your purchased tokens with us and we will distribute them in a variety of ways; directly ourselves and also we pass them along to the RCMP, City of Kamloops Bylaw Officers and the KCBIA Cap Team for distribution.
