Charity Support From Jubzi to W.E. Care For Kids
With one year since its launch, a local food ordering application has many reasons to celebrate. The company has donated almost $50,000 to the Windsor Downtown Mission, it has saved the restaurants hundreds of thousands in commissions and has had a positive impact in our community.
Jubzi was designed to address the most basic human need in our community which is hunger and shelter, the vision was to create an online ordering system where everybody eats, including the customer and those most vulnerable in our community. When an order is placed, 5% of the food’s subtotal is donated back to a local food bank.
There are approximately 150 restaurants in Windsor Essex who have joined the Jubzi platform, all making a commitment to help those in need.
With one successful year under Jubzi’s belt, the company made a decision to increase its impact footprint by collaborating with more charities and non-profit organizations in our region.
Starting January 1 2022, Jubzi will add 1 charity onto its platform per week. When customers use their charity code, the respective organization will receive 5% from the food’s subtotal. This code will be active throughout the year.
The first organization to join the Jubzi family on January 2, 2022 is We Care for Kids. W.E. Care for Kids is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for local paediatric programs at Windsor Regional Hospital, Met and Ouellette Campuses, Leamington District Memorial Hospital, John McGivney Children’s Centre, Family Respite Services, Windsor Essex Therapeutic Riding Association, as well as the W.E. Care for Kids House.
“W.E. Care for Kids is thrilled to be the first charity to join the Jubzi family” says Ashley Weeres, Operations Manager for W.E. Care for Kids Foundation. “This platform has already done so much to support our community and we are thankful to have been selected as one of the many new charities that will benefit from Jubzi’s support. If you are already planning on doing takeout, why not support a local business and local charities at the same time – it’s a wonderful concept. The support from Jubzi will go a long way in helping to ensure that our local paediatric healthcare programs have the funding they need to take care of our kids – right here, at home. When a customer enters the code WECARE in their checkout screen at Jubzi.com, we will receive 5%.”
