It’s Giving Tuesday! In the midst of the holiday frenzy, we ask that you give back this holiday season, and it’s easier than you think…
Give to your local community by joining a Co-op. We are lucky to live in an area that’s rich with Co-ops, including the Energy Co-op, Weaver’s Way, Mariposa, Creekside, South Philly, Kensington, and of course ourselves.
Give to your farmers by signing up for the Happy Valley Berry Farm’s CSA or the Cow-op Club. Shirley Kline, one of our most trusted farmers, is now providing the Swarthmore Co-op with seasonal CSA shares starting in the spring of 2014 and the Swartzentrubers from Schuylkill County are providing us with grass fed Piedmontese beef that can be ordered in various sizes through our website.
Give to those in need by donating to The Cost of Hunger, Doctors Beyond Borders, Growing Power, and Trickle Up.
Give to children by donating to Salad Bars to School.
These are just a few ways to give back this holiday season as Giving Tuesday stretches across all boundaries. We ask that you consider buying one of these gifts in name of a family member or friend for the holidays.
