Giving Back…Twice

DSC_1153

Results for August 2016 – January 2017

  • Orphan Wildlife Rescue – $970
  • Moveable Feast – $652
  • The Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education – $654

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

  • Frisky’s Wildlife & Primate Sanctuary & Rescue: Frisky’s is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit wildlife rehabili-tation center located in Howard County, MD. They take in injured, orphaned, abandoned, or displaced wildlife. If you find an injured animal in your yard or along the side of the road, you can bring it to them for rehabilitation, where the goal is to always return them back to their natural home once they are well enough or old enough.
  • ACLU-American Civil Liberties Union:
    For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.
  • Environment Maryland: Environment Maryland is a citizen-based environmental advocacy project of Environment America. We believe Maryland is full of special places worth protecting and preserving for future generations.

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, 2017 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!
