Shoppers round UP to support community health
In June 2021, Ammonoosuc Community Health Services, Inc. (ACHS) was the recipient of nearly $4.500 in funding from the Littleton Food Coop Partner of the Month program. The funds received will go to ACHS’s sliding-fee fund which provides monies for qualified patients in need of affordable medical or dental care.
The Littleton Food Co-op sponsors a different local non-profit partner each month of the year. Partners are selected by Co-op members by popular vote. Last year, ACHS was chosen from dozens of entries and was offered the month of April. Throughout the month shoppers at check-out were asked if they would like to round up their receipt for ACHS. If yes, then their receipt would be rounded up to the next dollar. Any difference up to .99 was added to the ACHS fund. At the end of April, the donations were tallied and ACHS received a check for $4, 415.93 which was presented to Jill Kimball, Community Relations Director at ACHS.
Monies help offset the cost of Medical & Dental care for those in need
“We’re so grateful for the funding.,” expressed Jill, “These monies go directly to help our most in-need patients get access to the quality medical and dental care they deserve. The Co-op is a wonderful community partner, and we are happy for the support of their shoppers.”
