Community Fund Recipients Fall 2021Actions
Twin Valley Co-op is pleased to be able to contribute positively to the communities in which we do business. TVC implemented a “You’re at home here” Community Fund that allows the Co-op to substantially commit to larger scale local initiatives that request funding outside the parameters of our current Member Relations donation program.
The Board of Directors review donation requests twice per year; March 1 and September 1. Requests must be for a project that is long term and enhances the improvement of the community which meets TVC’s criteria and Brand Values: Integrity, Commitment, Sustainability and Innovation.
Twin Valley Co-op Board of Directors are pleased to announce their recipients for Fall 2021.
Congratulations to these community projects:
