Shop 4% Friday on February 28th to Support Page Ahead

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 28th, 4% of sales will be donated to Page Ahead.

Page Ahead provides new books and develops reading activities that empower at-risk youth. It’s the leading provider of children’s books and literacy services in Washington State; it partners with elementary schools, early learning centers, and other agencies across Washington to create home libraries for children and families and to provide professional development to early learning educators on current literacy research and strategies. Since its founding in 1990, it has given away over three million books.

How will your shopping trip help Page Ahead?

4% Friday funds support Page Ahead’s Book Up Summer in Skagit County, a program in which K-2 students at majority low-income schools receive 12 free brand new books of their choice at the end of the school year for three years in a row for summer reading to minimize “summer learning slide.”
