Thanks to our Pass It On Program, a local non-profit organization receives a donation from Wild Oats’ member-owners each quarter. The money comes from the $.10 fee we charge shoppers for paper bags at checkout.
This program not only encourages the use of reusable bags, it also allows us to support the work of community-minded groups like the Berkshire Immigrant Center and Northern Berkshire Habitat For Humanity.
Possible recipients are nominated by our member-owners, who then choose the winner via online voting. The current ballot is available below and voting is open from now through Friday, January 24th. Our January donation will be $681.30.
