Giving Back…Twice

DSC_1153

Results for February 2017 – July 2017

  • Frisky’s Wildlife & Primate Rescue – $1,631.12
  • ACLU-American Civil Liberties Union – $1,320.76
  • Environment Maryland – $1,184.00

From Aug 1 – Jan 31, we’ll be collecting wooden tokens, representing each “refund dime,” to support the critical work of these nonprofit organizations:

  • International Rescue Committee Silver Spring Chapter The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future. In 2016, the IRC helped over 800 refugees and asylees rebuild their lives in the DC Metro area.
  • Meals on Wheels of Central MD Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland is a non-profit organization that helps homebound people to eat well and remain in their own homes.  Our dedicated staff and volunteers prepare and deliver over 1,000,000 nutritious meals a year. But Meals on Wheels is more than a meal – we also provide grocery shopping, phone pals, and other support services to help our clients maintain independence and peace of mind.
  • Small Angels Rescue Small Angels Rescue, Inc., is a Frederick County, MD based 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, and rats.  Small Angels was established in the fall of 2003 and since then has successfully rescued over 4,000 small animals. While we do not have a physical shelter, we use a network of foster homes instead to care for the animals until they find a forever home.

All of the “dimes” will be tallied, and Roots Market will match the “dimes” contribution and make donations to the charities, thanks to your generosity. Beginning February 1, 2018 we’ll collect for three new organizations. It’s completely up to you whether you’d like to keep your reusable bag refund or donate it to charity.

Be on the lookout for our charity collection bins, and think about giving back…twice!
