Since 2016, GIVE has made it simple for shoppers to support positive change in our community! Shoppers make small donations at the register by rounding up their purchases. This small change makes a big difference.
To date, shoppers have donated over $300,000. These donations have gone directly to organizations and programs that align with the Co-op’s larger objectives: To support a healthy and vibrant community.
Applications are now closed for GIVE 2021. Recipients will be announced at the Annual Owner Meeting on October 20th and highlighted in the Winter 2021 Garbanzo Gazette newsletter, published in January.
The Duluth Community School Collaborative’s mission is to foster community partnerships that promote wellness and school success for youth and families; creating a community of life-long learners that embraces diversity.
The Collaborative engages parents, youth, and community members to guide the work and provides support for engagement such as childcare, dinner, and transportation.
These reduce barriers to participation, as does the fact that all programs are free of charge to the family.
