Upcoming Workshops

4% Friday Community Shopping Day: One Community One Family

Friday, October 22, 7:00 AM

On the 4th Friday of every month, you shop and, together, we give! This year Skagit Valley Food Co-op has partnered with Skagit Community Foundation to make 4% Friday twice as nice with Double Donation Days! Skagit Community Foundation will be matching all of our 4% Friday giving for 2021.

Now, when you shop 4% Friday Community Shopping Days, your purchase will have twice the impact: on Friday, October 22nd, we’re donating 4% of sales to One Community One Family, and the Skagit Community Foundation will match our total to double the donation!

One Community One Family’s mission is to provide support at diagnosis to cancer patients in the Skagit Valley Community. They believe most people are not fully prepared for the overwhelming emotional and physical changes, as well as financial hardships, during this time. One Community One Family’s volunteers are dedicated to the long-term success of their grant program through ongoing donations and fundraising efforts. They are a new non-profit and up until this point, their focus has been raising funds. They’re currently in the process of awarding their first grant. The next phase of their mission is to offer resources and information they’re able to compile. These resources will include both traditional medicine as well as natural therapies. It’s important that upon diagnosis, a patient is given as much information as possible to know about all of their options.

How will your shopping trip help One Community One Family?

One Community One Family is awarding grants of $1000. They will be based on need, and especially with the fallout of COVID-19, the need is much greater than ever before. 4% Friday funds will be utilized to support 2-3 grants. That’s 2 or 3 families who will be eased a little from their burden during their shocking time of diagnosis and trying to figure out how they are going to make everything work and how to care for their family.
