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.
November CAUSE: California Heritage: Indigenous Research Project
CHIRP – California Heritage: Indigenous Research Project’s mission is to preserve, protect and perpetuate Nisenan culture. Through community outreach and education, CHIRP actively raises the visibility of the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Indian Tribe.
Among many successes this year, CHIRP has partnered with Bear Yuba Land Trust to restore a new section of the Deer Creek Tribute Trail that will extend the Nisenan Tribute section through the 32 acres of land native to the Nisenan.
CHIRP also partnered with the Nevada County Library to create a 4-part speaker series and story walk to connect the community with a Nisenan heritage, The Voice of the Nisenan: “We Are Still Here” is supported by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act.
