Shop 4% Friday on November 22nd to Support La Leche League

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 22nd, 4% of sales will be donated to La Leche League.

La Leche League USA helps parents, families, and communities to breastfeed, chestfeed, and human milk feed their babies through parent-to-parent support. LLL USA encourages, informs, educates, supports, and promotes the use of human milk and the intimate relationship and development that comes from nursing a child for as long as mutually desired. La Leche League provides support to breastfeeding mothers and their nursing children. It holds monthly support meetings, has an online discussion group, makes presentations, holds playgroups, and answers help calls.

How will your shopping trip help La Leche League?

La Leche League is made up entirely of unpaid volunteers. Materials are either purchased by leaders or received through donations and fundraisers. 4% Friday funds will be used to pay dues to the greater organization; purchase books, materials, and toys for meetings; pay rental fees for meeting spaces; and save the excess to cover the same recurring costs each year.
