The Pennies for Change program is one of the Co-op’s many giving programs. Customers can donate their change to our community partners by rounding at the registers to the next full dollar amount.
November Pennies for Change Partners
Lebanon Middle School PTO
Every week the backpacks of students in need are filled with basic food necessities and discreetly distributed or picked up by the students in the program. The backpacks are also deployed for holidays and breaks.
VerShare supports programs for children and adults all free of charge and run by volunteers, including a summer camp hosting 90 children from Vershire and surrounding towns and the Church-Orr House with library, small shop, four bedroom hostel and kitchen where senior lunch is served.
New Changes to the Co-op’s Pennies for Change Program
In 2020, the Co-op is changing the structure of the Pennies for Change program. While we will continue to support our three food access partners, we’ll now be awarding four organizations 10% of the monthly total, rather than 30% and 10% divided among two.
This will give our other community partners more opportunities for funding throughout the year; adding even more to the amazing work being done in the Upper Valley!
