Every penny counts. In 2016, Common Ground nearly doubled its 2015 Round Up for Good total in raising $56,319.30 for local community organizations. So far in 2017, shoppers have broken the record for an individual month - twice - and the co-op is on pace to top the 2016 total. Next year, we'll be Rounding Up for these important local organizations: Planned Parenthood, Daily Bread Soup Kitchen, Black Lives Matter: Champaign-Urbana, Courage Connection, Eastern Illinois Foodbank, R. A. C. E. S., Sola Gratia Farm, Crisis Nursery, Education Justice Project, Prairie Rivers Network, & Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center. We encourage you to read up on each organization and support their efforts, along with every other nominated organization (found here: http://www.commonground.coop/get-the-scoop/blog/election-results-board-round-good).
