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, our 1% Fridays program, and Produce for the People.

 

Donations

The Co-op supports many local non-profit organizations with their fundraising efforts.  Contact April Annechiarico at 715-341-1555 ext. 321 to arrange for goods to raffle or auction off at your big event!

 

Giving for the Holidays

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.

Produce for the People

In 2017, we started an initiative to donate the sales of our scratch and dent organic produce to local hunger prevention programs in our area. Two programs are chosen each year. If you have an organization you'd like us to consider, please send information to aprila@spacoop.com
