With your support, we were successful in landing a coveted position in the Lucky’s Market Bags for Change Program. Under this program, local non-profit organizations are selected by a Facebook vote every three months for the chance of a generous donation by Lucky’s Market. At the Market checkout, customers that bring a re-usable grocery bag are presented with a wooden dime token that they can place into one of three bins near the store exit. Each dime token represents a ten-cent donation to the selected non-profit. The bins for each non-profit are in place for three months, and we are hoping that tokens will pile up fast. Lucky’s Market plans to sweeten the pot too, by matching the token donations at the end of the three month period – Sweet!
Last week, Facebook voting began and ended, and votes for Friends of the Ravines were initially slow to come. We asked for votes, and our supporters turned out in force. By the end of voting on Sunday, Friends of the Ravines brought in the most votes of the 5 selected groups. Thanks for liking us on Facebook, and we hope that Lucky’s customers will like us too!
