The Co-op’s Register Round Up Program was established in April 2013, and each month gives shoppers the opportunity to round up their total at the register to the nearest dollar and give the difference to a local non-profit that has been pre-selected by the Co-op. Since its inception, Co-op shoppers have given back over $90,000 to area non-profits!
