Our Change Matters program makes it easy for shoppers to help local community-enrichment organizations by making small change donations at the registers that add up to meaningful contributions. Shoppers can round up their totals at the Wedge Lyndale, Wedge Table and Linden Hills Co-op!
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2020 calendar year. Please check back here in August of 2020 for the 2021 proposal guidelines and application.
