Shop 4% Friday on May 24 to Support Youthnet’s Emerson High School

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, May 24th, 4% of sales will be donated to Youthnet.

Founded in 1969, Youthnet’s mission is to provide caring and supportive educational and social services to youth and families to help them attain successful and productive lives. The principle purpose of Youthnet is to serve at-risk children, youth, and families in need. Many of those served by Youthnet have endured childhood trauma caused by abuse and neglect, been in need of safe and stable homes, struggled to complete their educational needs, and required the skills to assist them with transitioning to adulthood.

How will your shopping trip help Youthnet?

Emerson High School is one of the programs offered through Youthnet, and due to the fact that Emerson is recognized as a State Education Center, the school receives no direct State funding. On account of this, student and teaching supplies are often very short in supply. 4% Friday funds will be used to provide needed teaching and learning supplies for the alternative high school.
