Shop 4% Friday on March 22nd to Support Camp Korey’s Garden Program

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, March 22nd, 4% of sales will be donated to Camp Korey’s Garden Program.

Camp Korey’s mission is to honor the courage, strength, and determination of children and their families living with life-altering medical conditions by providing them with a transformational experience in a fun, safe camp environment with specialized medical support. Condition groups include skeletal dysplasia, Down syndrome, solid organ transplant, autism, and over 30 other medical conditions.

How will your shopping trip help Camp Korey?

All Camp Korey programs are offered 100% free of cost to all children and their families. 4% Friday funds will be used for the Garden Program, in which children with serious medical conditions experience the joy of planting, harvesting, cooking, and eating produce from the accessible organic garden. Funds will purchase supplies for the garden, including plants, additional deer fencing, gloves, gardening tools, and ingredients for kids to use what they’ve harvested in our outdoor pizza oven.
