Shop 4% Friday on November 20th to Support Underground Writing

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, November 20th, 4% of sales will be donated to Underground Writing.

Underground Writing is a literature-based creative writing program serving migrant, incarcerated, recovery, and other at-risk communities in northern Washington, through literacy and personal transformation. Underground Writing believes writing has the power to assist in the restoration of communities, the imagination, and individual lives.

How will your shopping trip help Underground Writing?

4% Friday funds will help establish the Co-op Chapbook Fund to publish one to two chapbooks every year. Chapbooks are small booklets of stories about the power of creative writing to assist in the restoration of human hope and imagination.
