The Out and About Core Area Gift Card 

Let’s welcome back employees to the core and invite them to explore!

With more employees returning to their workplaces this fall, the Out and About Core Area Gift Card encourages returning and already-onsite workers to get out and support local businesses during their breaks. The gift card is distributed by the Downtown London and Old East Village BIAs to people who work in the Core Area. This includes paid and volunteer work.

 

The gift card is valid until December 31, 2022.
