3% Thursday Community Shopping Days
On the third Thursday of each month 3% of the gross receipts of Orcas Food Co-op are donated to pre-selected community organizations.
Organizations will be eligible for the program based on their service to the community in the following areas: 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 Marketing and Outreach Committee and Co-op Management Team will select the winning organizations and assign each to a Thursday in one of the months of the following calendar year. The winning programs will be contacted prior to the first of the year.
The Co-op looks forward to collaborating to promote local organizations and their values to our members and the community at large.
