Round Up for Friends this June at the Chequamegon Food Co-op

Do you want to eat healthy and support Friends of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore? It’s as easy as saying “Round up for Friends” at the checkout counter any time during the month of  June at Ashland’s Chequamegon Food Co-op.

“Round Up for Partners” is a program that gives shoppers the option to “round up” to the next whole dollar (or more) on purchases made at the co-op. The proceeds from that rounding up are then donated to that month’s featured nonprofit organization to serve our community. 

June is “Round Up for Friends of the Apostle Islands” month.

Since the Round Up for Partners donation program was started in Spring of 2020, the Chequamegon Co-op has raised more than $26,000 for local causes.

Donations made to Friends of the Apostle Islands in June’s Round Up program will go specifically to our Access for All efforts to help support the National Park Service in its continuing efforts to make our park accessible to everyone by providing accessible ramps, campsites, boardwalks, picnic areas, and more. Our parks belong to everyone, including the 1-5 Americans challenged every day with mobility issues.
