We’re grateful to the community that has supported us for almost three decades now. Here are some of the things that we do to say “thanks”.
Community Donation Program
With our Community Donation Program we are able to provide support to local organizations through either product or gift card donations. Priority is given to local non-profits that are working to increase nutritional education, animal welfare, environmental sustainability, or cooperation among cooperatives. If your organization is interested in receiving a donation from us, please review the Donation Request Guidelines.
We welcome school groups, moms’ groups, individuals with dairy and gluten free diets and anyone else who is interested to take a guided tour of our store. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a tour.
1,821,762 bags saved from the waste stream and over $91,000 donated to local charities
Every reusable bag that our customers use raises money for local charities in our community and keeps single-use bags out of the waste stream.
Here’s how it works…
Every quarter we choose four non-profits to support. These non-profits represent the categories of Kids, Environment, Animals, and Community. It is easy to donate, all you have to do is bring your reusable bags when you shop and receive a 5¢ token for each bag used. On your way out, drop it in our “Donation Station.” At the end of every quarterly donation period, we count the amount of tokens and add 1% of sales from a chosen day and we mail out a check to each non-profit!
Do you want to nominate a local non-profit for our Bring a Bag for Change program? Send your requests to email@example.com.
We’ve seen how people band together when disasters strike that devastate communities or wildlife habitats. We choose non-profits who are responding to the disaster to give you a way of supporting the clean-up. Talk to your cashier as you check out to make a donation.
