[January 2, 2015] Milwaukee, WI - Outpost Natural Foods Cooperative announces the four recipients of its 2015 Community Partners give back program: Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative (January - March), Wellspring (April - June), Schlitz Audubon Nature Center (July - September) and Progressive Community Health Centers (October - December). Community Partners is part of an overall ten year success strategy that includes building strong community partnerships with local like-minded organizations.
Outpost partners with four different locally based non-profit organizations on an annual basis. The goal is to build greater community awareness for the co-op’s owners, shoppers and staff. Each organization receives a $3,000 donation from Outpost, opportunities to partner with the co-op on additional outreach, volunteer and fundraising events and one-fourth of the earned interest from Outpost’s Co-op Community Fund, an endowment of the Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation that supports co-op development across the United States. New with the 2015 program, Outpost employees can enroll in a voluntary payroll deduction program where a portion of each paycheck can be designated to one or more of the four Community Partner organizations. The co-op will match up to $5,000 of total employee contributions.
According to Outpost General Manager Pam Mehnert, “Cooperatives have long been leaders in their communities when it comes to many kinds of social integration. Outpost's Community Partners program is a perfect example of the co-op business model strengthening community relationships.”
Community Partners has been an Outpost program for over twenty years. Over $2000 was raised through additional fundraising efforts in 2014.
