Wooden Nickel display spring 2017.jpg

Each year, your co-op donates to 12 local non-profits through the Wooden Nickel program at checkout. Organizations are featured 3 at a time, for 3-month increments. Since there are so many amazing local non-profits to choose from, we ask our Co-op Owners to help us narrow the list!

This year's voting period is 5/1/19 - 5/7/19.

Please note, you must be a Basics Co-op Owner to vote. (Not sure what that is? Click here.)



Remember to pick up a Wooden Nickel each time you shop at the co-op! 

How it works:

- Each time you shop, pick up a wooden nickel from the basket at the end of the register stand.

- The Wooden Nickel collector is located at the Customer Service desk. Choose which non-profit you'd like to support that day, and drop your wooden nickel into their column.

- At the end of the 3 months, Basics will cut a check to each non-profit equal to 5 cents per wooden nickel.

What an awesome way to show cooperation at work in our community!
