Shop 4% Friday on August 23rd to Support YMCA Oasis Teen Shelter

On the 4th Friday of every month, you shop and, together, we give! Skagit Valley Food Co-op’s 4% Friday Community Shopping Day recipients receive 4% of the day’s sales at the Co-op, so the more you put in your cart, the more you give back! On Friday, August 23rd, 4% of sales will be donated to YMCA’s Oasis Teen Shelter.

The YMCA Oasis Teen Shelter provides emergency shelter, case management, outreach, educational workshops, and referral to needed services as well as providing basic needs for runaway and homeless youth ages 13-17. The mission of the YMCA Oasis Teen Shelter is to meet the needs of the youth it serves with the goal of finding a safe and secure housing placement for runaway and homeless youth while making the proper connections and referrals to relevant youth based services in Skagit County and beyond.

How will your shopping trip help the YMCA Oasis Teen Shelter?

The funds from 4% Friday will go directly to support runaway and homeless youth through staff service, daily programs, and meeting the basic needs of the youth we serve. The direct service of the staff is the principle in which youth are provided the care and support they need during times of emergent care. Shelter staff are available to serve youth in need of emergency shelter and support 365 nights a year.
