THANK YOU Co-op Shoppers!
During the first few weeks of March, you collectively donated $4,341.19 to Food Connects. The Monadnock Food Co-op collected these donations through our Round It Up donation drive in March. Customers rounded up their purchases to donate their change to this local organization.
“We are astounded by the generosity of the co-op community,” said Laura Carbonneau, Food Connects Development & Communications Manager. “These funds will have a huge impact on our operations, ensuring that our Food Hub can continue to provide safe, healthy, local food to our community. We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with the Monadnock Food Co-op and look forward to growing and strengthening our local food economy together.”
The Co-op’s Round It Up program empowers shoppers to make positive change in their community by donating their change. During the Co-op’s last fiscal year, the Round It Up program raised $31,170.96 and supported eight nonprofits.
