Change for Charity Goes to the Community

October 28, 2020

Thanks to the generous shoppers of the Goose Community Grocer, local charities receive thousands in donations each month.

The Goose Grocer is pleased to offer the Change for Charity program. Customers can round up to the nearest dollar for a Whidbey Island non-profit organization. April, May, and June’s local charity is the Whidbey Community Foundation. They are raising funds for our neighbors in need,  filling gaps for Whidbey Island households that aren’t met through existing funding streams. Examples of assistance include: child care subsidies, utilities, rental assistance, aid to maintain employment (i.e., broken car), and one-time extraordinary expenses. Be sure to ask your cashier about the roundup program on checkout!
