Our Change Matters program provides shoppers an opportunity to help local community-enrichment organizations by making small-change donations, which accumulate into a meaningful contribution for the recipient. The recipient changes monthly, with organizations chosen by a committee of Wedge and Linden Hills Co-op staff.
Rounding up at the register is an easy way to make donations. During the month of March all register donations will go to support local food shelves via the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign.
The Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign is a statewide, grassroots effort to provide funds and food for food shelves across Minnesota. This year, the co-op is proud to support 5 local food shelves with our March donations: The Groveland Food Shelf, Joyce Uptown Food Shelf, Sabathani Community Center, The Food Group and Open Arms of Minnesota.
Change Matters! Next time you’re at the checkout we hope you’ll consider “rounding-up”. If you prefer, you may donate a larger dollar amount at once by asking the cashier to add it to your total. All donations will appear on your itemized receipt . With your generous support, we can ensure that valuable organizations like these continue to work and grow in our community.
