Selling groceries might keep our store in business, but giving back to our community is at the heart of what we do. We think this new program will reap big rewards for community nonprofits. There are three ways for you to help: round up your purchase total to the nearest dollar, bring a bag and donate your bean, or share your pocket change.
Our May Change for Community Recipient:
Astoria Parks Foundation provides scholarships for local individuals and families to access health and wellness opportunities through the Astoria Parks & Recreation Department.
Last year the foundation raised $30,000 through several events including Run on the River and awarded nearly 1000 scholarships. Your co-op has been a proud sponsor of the foundation’s events. This summer we’re sponsoring one of the foundation’s Parks After Dark movies: Beetlejuice on June 16.
Let’s raise funds for this awesome organization! To find out other ways to participate or donate please visit astoriaparksfoundation.com.
