Are you a North Coast Co-op member? Vote for EPIC and our allies!
We've been nominated for the North Coast Co-op Seeds for Change Round-up Program, a community-giving opportunity that allows customers to "round up" their Co-op purchases to the nearest dollar. The Co-op takes those extra cents and gives them directly to local organizations that are doing important work to better our community. A different nonprofit organization is selected to benefit from the round ups each month. The Co-op dedicates three round up months to Food for People, Twin Pines Community Foundation and the Co-op Pumpkin Patch. The remaining nine months of the year are available through an annual application process. The 9 (out of 57) organizations selected by the membership will get a spot in the program for 2024, and we would love your vote!
Vote before Thursday, November 9th at an in-store ballot station at either Co-op location, or online at www.northcoast.coop/vote.
Each Co-op member gets to vote for up to 9 organizations, so while voting please also consider EPIC's sister organizations: the Coalition for Responsible Transportation Priorities, Friends of the Eel River, and Humboldt Waterkeeper (formerly Humboldt Baykeeper).
🚲 The Coalition for Responsible Transportation Priorities (CRTP) is our local advocate for safe and sustainable transportation. From ensuring there are safe routes for walking and biking to promoting zoning reform and investments in public transit, CRTP is at the center of local efforts to create more vibrant, climate-friendly communities. CRTP is a critical partner in ensuring we take local climate action and needs your support.
🐟 Friends of the Eel River is leading the way on Eel River dam removal and ensuring that the Eel River—one of the most important salmonid-bearing waters in California—has enough cool, clean water. The Friends are a key ally and deserve your support.
🌊 Humboldt Waterkeeper (formerly Humboldt Baykeeper) safeguards Humboldt Bay, the crown jewel of our local region. Humboldt Waterkeeper has been instrumental in protecting Humboldt Bay, whether that is forcing polluters to stop discharging into the bay and its tributaries and watchdogging proposed developments in the region. Humboldt Waterkeeper is a vital part of our local environmental movement and needs your support.
Go vote! Thank you so much for your support!
