BriarPatch Food Co-op Round-up at the Register program
The Co-op CAUSE program allows you to donate easily at checkout to a community endeavor aligned with the Co-op’s Ends Policies. Together we can raise a substantial amount for these causes by focusing attention on a given project for several weeks.
As you check out, just ask the cashier to round up your total payment to the nearest dollar or more. The amount over and above the purchase total — 100 percent of it — will be donated to the designated project.
February CAUSE: Sierra Roots
Sierra Roots is dedicated to serving the needs of chronically homeless people. We are committed to providing homes in a safe, secure community, where residents are linked to the supportive resources available. We collaborate with residents, helping them progress toward health and self-reliance. Housing First is the overall goal to provide a home, which encompasses not only being housed and part of a community, but also includes the stability of a long-term tenancy and the prospect of improved health. It is relationship-based work that meets people “where they are at” and takes on the challenges and obstacles they have endured. Many of the chronically homeless people of Nevada County have been homeless for years, and have severe disabilities such as mental illness, substance abuse disorders, and chronic health problems. Serving these vulnerable people benefits them as well as the community. It helps keep our community clean, friendly, and beautiful, while improving safety from fires and health epidemics.
