Shop 4% Friday on February 22nd to Give Back to Skagit Valley College’s Second Chance Scholarship

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, February 22nd, 4% of sales will be donated to Skagit Valley College Foundation’s Second Chance Scholarship.

The SVC Foundation works to identify, promote, receive and manage all gifts to Skagit Valley College from individuals, corporations, foundations and other organizations. Overseen by a board of governors and staffed by a professional development team, the SVC Foundation administers all gifts in accordance with donor wishes. The Second Chance Scholarship is administered by the Skagit Valley College Foundation and provides formerly incarcerated students with support to maximize their opportunity to make a new life with the skills which are available through education at Skagit Valley College.

How will your shopping trip help the Second Chance Scholarship?

The 4% Friday funds would be used to create a one-time special scholarship award to be divided between two or more students in addition to the regular Second Chance Scholarship award.
