National Co-op Grocers Raise Funds for Farm Flood Victims

07/22/2008
Members of the National Cooperative Grocers Association (NCGA) are banding together to help raise funds for co-ops and co-op suppliers hurt by the historic floods that devastated portions of the Midwest over the past several weeks.

NCGA, a business services cooperative for 109 consumer-owned food co-ops located throughout the United States, is collaborating with the Northcountry Cooperative Development Fund (NCDF), to make its cooperative disaster relief funds available as a collection and disbursement agent for donations.

Shoppers at participating co-ops will be able to donate in four ways: cash and spare change; check; mail; and online.

A business services cooperative for retail food co-ops located throughout the United States, NCGA is owned by 109 food co-ops operating more than 130 stores in 32 states with combined annual sales of over $945 million.
