Our co-op community raised a record total of $15,125.50 for Tubman, a local non-profit that provides comprehensive services to aid in safety, hope and healing. Thank you to our owners and shoppers for making a real difference in our community.
Change Matters funds helped open an on-site Food Pantry at the Tubman Chrysalis Center in South Minneapolis. Funds will primarily be used to purchase non-perishable food items and any additional needs such as pantry shelving, storage, etc. From Tubman: “We believe offering on-site resources for healthy food will support our clients to have healthy bodies as well as healthy minds, relationships, safety and security.”
Last fiscal year, we raised a record high of $154,931 for our Change Matters groups.

This October, we are partnering with My Very Own Bed, a local non-profit that provides new beds to children in families who have recently moved out of homelessness into more stable housing in the Twin Cities. With every bed, each child receives a Dream Kit, which contains everything they need to make their bed comfortable.
Help build dream kits by donating the following items at the co-op near the registers during October. We are collecting NEW:
• twin-sized mattress pads
• twin-sized sheets
• twin-sized comforters and blankets
• small stuffed animals
Used items will not be accepted.
My Very Own Bed is our Change Matters partner for October, learn more at myveryownbed.org.
Help us donate personal care items to local shelters and resource centers during Wellness Weekend, Oct. 5 – 6.
