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.
JULY CAUSE: NEO
NEO is an innovative non-profit youth center and empowerment program, focused on empowering youth to make healthy lifestyle choices. NEO strives to create a safe, fun and positive environment for all youth and young adults between the ages of 11-25 years old.
Founded by two nineteen-year-olds in 2008, NEO hosted over 350 teen-led events throughout western Nevada County before opening the Youth Center in 2015. The Youth Center is a drop-in, out-of-school facility offering an array of activities, workshops and events.
One thing that sets NEO apart from many other youth centers is the long-time focus on being a youth-led organization. NEO was founded by teens, and young people continue to drive the program today.
NEO seeks to reduce youth isolation, provide positive mentorship to help young people navigate their teen years, help them find their passions, develop a sense of purpose, build self-esteem and cultivate skills for success.
