Co-ops for Community Day

Rising Tide member-owners and shoppers support New Hope for Women and other local nonprofits through our Co-ops for Community Day program.

 

Each spring, our member-owners nominate community organizations to participate in our Co-ops for Community Day program. Organizations with the most nominations appear on the ballot during our annual Board elections, and Rising Tide member-owners vote to determine which 10 local nonprofit organizations will be the recipients during the upcoming year.

In this program, Rising Tide donates .5% of our Wednesday sales to a different local organization each month. Rising Tide’s Community Investment Fund is the donation recipient in November and December every year.

Below are the organizations chosen through July 2016:

July 2015: ElderCare Network of Lincoln County
August 2015: FARMS (Focus on Agriculture in Rural Maine Schools)
September 2015: Lincoln County Animal Shelter
October 2015: Healthy Kids
