Giving Back…Twice


Results for August 2017 – January 2018

  • International Rescue Committee Silver Spring Chapter – $2,693.22
  • Small Angels Rescue – $2,857.52
  • Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland – $3,711.68

From Feb 1 – July 31, we will be collecting wooden tokens, representing each “refund dime,” to support the critical work of these nonprofit organizations:

  • Friends of Rabbits Friends of Rabbits is a local rabbit rescue dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming rabbits in MD, VA and DC. We rescue rabbits from kill shelters and other high risk situations in the region and beyond. In 2017, Friends of Rabbits rescued 275 rabbits and found forever homes for 250 small animals.
  • Natural Resources Defense Council NRDC works to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. NRDC works to ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water and the wild, and to prevent special interests from undermining public interests.
  • Chilis on Wheels Chilis on Wheels is an all-volunteer organization that provides vegan food for people in  need of a warm meal. Through leafleting, talks in schools, community centers, and churches and one-on-one mentorship, Chilis on Wheels actively advocates for veganism to communities of low income.

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 August 1, 2018 we will 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!
