Co-op's Wooden Nickel Fundraiser:
The Boys and Girls Club will receive proceeds from the Neighborhood Co-op's Wooden Nickel Fundraiser from April - June.
Here's How It Works:
Whenever a person shops at the Co-op and brings their own bag or basket to shop with, they are given a Wooden Nickel and can then choose to donate to one of two agencies. The Wooden Nickel boxes are up and are starting to collect coins!
We'd like to encourage you and your friends to please shop the Co-op and to donate your wooden nickels and/or cash the Boys & Girls Club of Carbondale! It's all greatly appreciated!
Knock Hunger Out of the Park Campaign: www.knockhunger.com
The Knock Hunger Out of the Park Campaign will benefit local food pantries and organizations in Southern Illinois by asking the community to donate non-perishable food items at each Wednesday night Southern Illinois Miners home game.
Fans that attend the Wednesday night home games to cheer on our Southern Illinois Miners will have the chance to win social media contests, door prizes, t-shirt toss and other game night contests and giveaways. The first 250 fans that bring 10 non-perishable items to the game will receive a custom game night t-shirt and each game will feature a new shirt design!
