Our grant program offers $1,000 divided up among local causes at each of our 5 retail locations for a total of $5,000 per quarter and $20,000 for the year. Our program has slightly changed due to the coronavirus however we are still inviting the public to help determine how the funds will be distributed. 

The public participates in an online poll where they can vote for the cause they would like to support.  At the end of the quarter, we will calculate the funding amount based on the percentage of votes that each organization receives.
