Co-ops for Community Day

LCAS 7-14 (640x479)

RT member-owners support the Lincoln County Animal Shelter 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 2015:

March 2015: Community Energy Fund of Lincoln County

April 2015: New Hope for Women

May 2015: Healthy Kids

June 2015: MOFGA (Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association

July 2015: ElderCare Network of Lincoln County
