Giving Back

The Co-op supports community events and organizations with goals similar to our own. As part of our mission we strive to lend a hand through donations and our 1% Friday program.

Giving for Christmas

For over 10 years, the Co-op has sponsored a local family in need through Operation Bootstrap's Holiday Basket Program. With donations collected at the registers, we will provide a holiday meal, gifts and homemade goodies. For more information about the Holiday Basket program contact Melissa Rice at 715-341-1555 x302. Members are welcome to contribute gifts and homemade specialties, as well cash donations.

1% Fridays

Since April 2000, we’ve earmarked 1% of our total sales each Friday throughout the year for charitable donations.  We choose to give to organizations that we believe are reputable, serve a need, and reflect principles of the SPA Co-op and its members. If you have an organization that you would like us to consider, please send information to the Stevens Point Area Cooperative c/o Jessica Lawson.
