Are you looking for an easy way to give back to your local community? Just round up your total at the registers next time you shop at the Co-op. During most of the year, your “spare change” will go directly to our two area food shelves – CVOEO an HOPE. Because we value your experience at the Co-op, we will not usually verbally solicit “round up” donations from you at the register. But four times a year, we just get too excited and hold a Rally for Change!
The Co-op’s Rally for Change program is an effort to promote and raise money for local (Addison County Based) non-profit organizations. Every three months, for one week, we shine a spotlight on a local non-profit organization whose primary mission is to serve at-risk populations. With their help, we share information about the organization, including more ways to become involved beyond donating at the registers. Representatives from the organization join us in the store so that our shoppers can learn more directly from the folks who are on the front lines of delivering help to those in need. At the end of the week, the Co-op will match any donations raised at the registers.
