This season on Eagle Run dike we noticed a significant drop in cash donations for Eagle Watch. About the same time, we were hearing from people we asked to buy a holiday raffle ticket that they “didn’t have any money with them”.
Rob Leblanc, Operations Coordinator for Eagle Watch this season, suggested that we set up an account with Square.ca as a simple and cost-effective way to provide options for payment by cards and mobile devices. We now have one of the devices and Rob has set it up and tested it at the dike.
Our plan is to offer this option for payment and donation whenever possible at SES events and programs. Thanks to Rob for his help with bringing us up-to-date.
