Coins for the Community Tops $77,000

Thanks to our generous customers, our December spare change collection raised $8,695.37 for Women Organized to Make Abuse Nonexistent, Inc. (W.O.M.A.N., Inc.), to support the many programs it provides to survivors of domestic violence. This brings our grand total since our program’s inception to $77,405.15.

sproutsFor January, our spare change collection was earmarked for Sprouts Cooking Club, whose mission is to teach children, hands-on, that healthy, nutritional eating is fun by involving them in the entire process, from planting the seed, to harvesting, to cooking with real chefs, to cleaning, to eating a delicious meal. The Sprouts Cooking Club scholarship program allows the group to include kids from all backgrounds, no matter their financial standing! We’ll report on those numbers next month. Our February collection will benefit our favorite bugs: Save Nature and its traveling insect petting zoo!

Since 1988 Save Nature has focused its efforts on protecting entire ecosystems and natural communities, not just individual species, to ensure a long-term conservation strategy. The hands-on Insect Discovery Lab introduces children to the extraordinarily diverse world of insects and other arthropods and their key role in the web of life.

It’s easy to donate to Coins for the Community! Simply drop your spare change in any of our collection jars or choose the “Donate” option when you’re checking out at any of our registers. Or bring in that old jar of pennies that’s collecting dust on your dresser!
