Shop 4% Friday on November 16 to Support Anacortes Family Center

Skagit Valley Food Co-op’s 4% Friday Community Shopping Day is one of the many ways we like to give back to the community, and we couldn’t do it without you! 4% Friday recipients are honored with 4% of the day’s sales at the Co-op, so the more you shop, the more you give back! On Friday, November 16th, 4% of sales will go to support the Anacortes Family Center.

The mission of the Anacortes Family Center is to serve homeless women, children and families in crisis by providing shelter in addition to comprehensive transformative services to achieve long lasting personal success and self sufficiency.

How does Anacortes Family Center plan to use its 4% Friday funds?

Funding will be used to support our life saving and life changing program. This includes case management to help families secure jobs, housing and process and heal from unique trauma in 60-90 days. The program holds a 83% success rate at getting families out of homelessness. The funds will provide weekly life skills classes for adults and children as well as intensive therapeutic counseling for traumatized children.
