Wooden Nickel Donation Program

Wooden Nickel Survey Results

Thank you to the Basics Co-op Owners who took the survey in May! More than 100 cooperators voted to narrow the list from more than 30 worthy non-profits to their top 12.

The Wooden Nickel Donation Program at the co-op is a reminder for us all that our small decisions add up to great things for our community. All you have to do is pick up one wooden nickel each time you shop. Drop it into the collector at Customer Service, where 3 local non-profits are featured at a time.  At the end of 3 months Basics will cut them a check – 5¢ for every wooden nickel collected!

 

The following local non-profits will be featured over the next year:

July – September 2017

ECHO

Project 16:49

Health Net

 

October – December 2017

GIFTS

YWCA

Family Respite Care, Inc.

 

January – March 2018

House of Mercy

CASA

Acts of Kindness

 

April – June 2018

Veterans Transitional  Housing

Agrace Hospice & Palliative Care

Ice Age Trail Alliance, Rock County

 

To find out how you can further support the non-profits listed, click on the links. All are 501(c)3 organizations, accept direct donations and can always use more volunteers!

Thank you, cooperators, for all you do to support those who need it the most. We are truly stronger together!

Wooden Nickel Donation Program

Wooden Nickel Donation Survey

Wooden Nickel Donation Survey

Every year, Basics donates to 12 local non-profits through the Wooden Nickel Program at checkouts. Organizations are featured 3 at a time, for 3-month increments. Since there are so many amazing non-profits in our area we leave it up to you, our Co-op Owners, to decide which 12 will be featured over the next year!

All active Basics Co-op Owners are invited and encouraged to take the survey now through May 31. Help us narrow the list of more than 30 applicants down to 12.

Remember to pick up a wooden nickel at register each time you shop. Drop it into the collector at Customer Service, and Basics will donate 5 cents for each wooden nickel. It’s a great reminder that our little actions can add up to a lot of good.
