The Oneota Community Food Co-op hosted a “Round-Up at the Register” campaign May 6th through May 20th. During this time, customers at the Co-op were given the opportunity to round-up their sale to the nearest whole dollar with these funds going to support Neighbors Helping Neighbors. The campaign held in May raised over $1,400.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors is a fund established by Decorah UCC to assist immigrants and their families in rebuilding their lives following an immigration related crisis. This community effort is funded through individual donations, local congregations, and local organizations. Funds currently assist local families in need of items such as household supplies and beds as they establish new homes following release from ICE custody.
