Hello Co-op Friends,
We are now taking submissions for your favorite South Dakota based non-profit for our “Round-Up at the register” campaign. For those of you who do not know, every month we pick a different South Dakota based non-profit to support. Funds are raised by asking our customers if they would like to round-up to the next nearest dollar when they make a purchase at the register. We tally up the funds at the end of the month and donate 100% of them to the charity we selected that month. We are now asking for your help finding more great organizations to support! If you have an idea for us, please click on my picture above to email us at the Co-op to submit your nomination. Of course, we prefer organizations that work to fight food insecurity in our community, but we are always open to other missions as well. Here are the non-profits we have supported so far:
Feeding South Dakota
The Food Pantry
Children’s Inn of SD
Sioux Falls Humane Society
Special Olympics SD
The Boy’s Ranch
Dress for Success SD
Thank you for supporting the Co-op and all the great organizations we partner with!
Our Round-up recipient for June is: Dress for Success Sioux Falls!
Here is a bit about them:
Our vision is a world where women do not live in poverty. We strive for a world where all women are financially independent, are treated with dignity and respect and are directly impacting their lives and those of their families. We aspire to a world that fully harnesses the power of women and recognizes their role in economic sustainability.
“We are about much more than simply a new outfit”
Our purpose is to offer long-lasting solutions that enable women to break the cycle of poverty. Dress for Success is part of a global movement for change, empowering women to obtain safer and better futures.
We provide each client with professional attire to secure employment, but we are about much more than simply a new outfit. Besides physically equipping the client with apparel and accessories, our programs furnish her with a confidence that she carries forever and the knowledge that she can actively define her life, the direction she takes and what success means to her.
