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.
March CAUSE: Sierra Streams Institute
Sierra Streams Institute (SSI) is a watershed monitoring, research, education and restoration group based in Nevada City. SSI’s mission is to link water, science and people for the benefit of human and environmental health through monitoring, environmental restoration, research and science education delivered to local adults and young students alike.
On August 18, SSI’s office and Environmental Center was tragically lost in the Jones Fire. In spite of that, SSI remains resilient and dedicated to keeping our water clean and addressing other ongoing environmental issues that impact human and ecosystem health for years to come.
Fun Fact: Sierra Streams Institute was an inaugural Nonprofit Neighbor in our PatchWorks volunteer program. In 2020, BriarPatch owners contributed 448 volunteer hours to SSI!
