These sponsorships support a wide range of organizations and causes aligned with the values of the cooperative movement.
REAL CHANGE Donation Program
In 2013, the Co-op launched the REAL CHANGE donation program, a way for shoppers to support worthy causes and organizations throughout the year. Donations can be made on an ongoing basis, during your transactions at the register, by rounding up your total to the nearest dollar – or any donation amount of your choosing. Recipients benefit from donations given at the registers. Our REAL CHANGE donation program is focused on organizations that share our commitment to a healthy local community.
