Did you know that you can support a local nonprofit organization or community partner by rounding up your purchase at the register? By doing so, you are participating in a collective effort to support organizations and programs that have a direct impact on our local community. By giving your spare change, you are creating the change you want to see in our region and the world.
Every time you check out, you can round up your total to the nearest dollar and that extra change will become part of a donation towards organizations such as Good Beginnings of Central Vermont, Prevent Child Abuse Vermont, Community Harvest of Central Vermont, the Humane Society and many others. The organization that is the Give Change recipient changes on a monthly basis.
Give Change Recipient: Vermont FoodBank
The Vermont Foodbank, our featured community partner for the month of June, is Vermont’s largest hunger relief organization. Since 1986, they have been responding to the problems of food insecurity and the need for supplemental food assistance among low income households in central Vermont. Now with a network of 215 food shelves, meal sites, senior centers, and after-school programs, they provide food to families, children, older adults, and individuals at schools and hospitals across the state. Through their wide range of programs, they provide nutritious food and promote health, while becoming nationally recognized as one of the most effective and efficient nonprofits and food banks in the country.
Customers can support Vermont FoodBank and their numerous essential programs by rounding up their purchase every time they check out through June 30.
