Giving Tree 2017

Giving Tree

It’s easy to donate!

Choose a cause. Choose a card. And checkout with a cashier!

The first step is to pick a local non-profit to support. There are 3 to choose from (or donate to all three!):

  • Nelson Street Outreach Team
    • Give the gift of community support and social justice!
      The Downtown Nelson Street Outreach Program offers immediate and caring response to Nelson’s ‘street culture’ population – those struggling with homelessness, poverty, mental health, and/or addiction.
  • West Kootenay Community Teeth Clinic
    • Give the gift of health!
      The West Kootenay Community TEETH Clinic Society is a not-for-profit clinic offering high quality dental care for West Kootenay Boundary low income community members, including children, their families and seniors.
  • Friends of Kootenay Lake
    • Give the gift of environmental stewardship!
      Friends of Kootenay Lake Stewardship Society (FOKLSS) is an inclusive, stewardship organization dedicated to sustaining a healthy Kootenay Lake for future generations

Then you can choose your design. There are three designs to choose from (or get one of each!):

Then pay for your card at the cashier. It’s that simple!

All proceeds are given to the cause of your choice (Kootenay Co-op pays for printing and design).

This is a great gift idea for the friend or family member who doesn’t need any more “stuff” and appreciates supporting a good cause.

Looking for another way to give?

Consider pairing the card with a calendar (supporting SEEDS) or a cookbook (supporting Kootenay Kids Society), both zero markup items, for the ultimate philanthropic gift!
