Outpost Natural Foods Cooperative is committed to supporting and building strong partnerships with local like-minded organizations: This has been accomplished through its Community Partners give-back program for more than 20 years. We are proud to annouce that SEWISC has been chosen as one of Outpost's 2017 partners!
Every year four locally-based non-profit organizations partner with Outpost in order to build greater community awareness of the group for the co-op’s owners, shoppers and staff, and also to raise funds. Each organization receives a $3000 donation from Outpost, an opportunity to partner with Outpost on an additional fundraising event and one-fourth of the earned interest from Outpost’s Co-op Community Fund, an endowment arm of the Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation that supports co-op development across the United States. An additional $1,600 was raised through an Outpost staff payroll donation program for Outpost’s 2016 Community Partners.
Building strong community partnerships is a key part of what Outpost does as an organization. According to Pam Mehnert, Outpost’s General Manager, “Cooperatives have long been leaders in their communities when it comes to many kinds of social integration. Outpost's Community Partners program is a perfect example of the co-op business model strengthening community relationships.”
Watch for special events to highlight SEWISC's partnership with Outpost during the months of April, May and June this year.
