Great community support from East End Food Coop!

Thanks to all the customers at our neighboring organization, the East End Food Coop, for supporting Shady Lane by rounding up your purchases during the Coop's recent Register Roundup event! When customers asked to "round up for Shady Lane" in September, 100% of the pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters they'd have received as change came directly to support our work.

Thanks again to all at the Coop for facilitating this program that benefits many area nonprofits throughout the year. Visit the Coop's website at EastEndFood.coop to learn more about the Register Roundup program.
