Shop 4% Friday on September 24th to Support YMCA Oasis Teen Shelter

On the 4th Friday of every month, you shop and, together, we give! This year Skagit Valley Food Co-op has partnered with Skagit Community Foundation to make 4% Friday twice as nice with Double Donation Days! Skagit Community Foundation will be matching all of our 4% Friday giving for 2021.

Now, when you shop 4% Friday Community Shopping Days, your purchase will have twice the impact: on Friday, September 24th, we’re donating 4% of sales to YMCA Oasis Teen Shelter, and the Skagit Community Foundation will match our total to double the donation!

The mission of the Skagit Valley Family YMCA is to create positive community change through relationships empowering the mind, body, and spirit of ALL. Oasis also uses this mission but emphasizes providing “the gift of time” to youth experiencing homelessness.

How will your shopping trip help YMCA Oasis Teen Shelter?

The funds from 4% Friday will be utilized within the YMCA’s Daylight Center Program. Oasis’ Daylight Center program provides daily activities that youth can participate in. 4% Friday Funds would help Oasis offer more enriching field trips, fun things like going to the movies, or doing pottery downtown, etc., and provide more resources to teens.
