The Orcas Food Co-op’s Community Hero Program serves as an umbrella for “3% Thursdays,” “Register Round Up” and “Coins for Community.” Selected organizations will be the recipient of funds gathered through the following:
• 3% Thursday: 3 percent of the gross receipts on the third Thursday of the month.
• Register Round Up: Shoppers have the opportunity to round up their purchases throughout the entire month.
• Coins for Community: Wooden coins donated when customers bring a bag.
The co-op is currently accepting applications from non-sectarian, non-partisan charitable community groups. To qualify for consideration apply by Nov. 30. Mail your application to Orcas Food Co-op Attn: Susannah Weaver PO Box 913, Eastsound WA 98245, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications can be found at www.orcasfood.coop or in the store.
Organizations will be eligible for the program based on their service to the community in local community service organizations, organic food, healthy food for children or seniors, environmentally friendly and sustainable agricultural practices, human rights, environmental preservation and groups with similar missions and values. The winning programs will be contacted before the first of the year.
The Co-op looks forward to collaborating to promote local organizations and its values to our members and the community at large.
