Our 3% Community Donation Day for June goes to the Suzy Hamilton Legacy Fund held in trust by the Osprey Foundation. The award honours women for environmental leadership.
Suzy was a West Kootenay icon whose lifetime of community work leaves an incredible legacy. She helped found West Kootenay EcoSociety, Nelson Garden Festival, Kokanee Creek Nature Centre, Kootenay Barter, and Nelson Market Fest. She was also an important part of the campaigns to protect Grohman Narrows, Lasca Creek, and Jumbo Valley. Kootenay Co-op staff member and long-time friend Matt Lowe wrote this article about her contributions and her passing in September 2016.
On Tuesday June 6, we encourage people to shop knowing that 3% of our store sales are going to this Legacy Fund. You can also make a tax-deductible contribution here:
