Member Grown Outreach
In addition to the dividend return to members, GreenStone also shows appreciation through GreenStone’s Member Grown Outreach program, with a total of $20,000 in donations given to local organizations and charities. To connect our members to our effort to strengthen our support of the local communities, money is directed to groups based on member votes at their local branch.
From Patronage Day, March 17, through March 31, members were able to vote online or in their local branches for one of three categories that best represents the cause they would like to see GreenStone support.
- Health and Wellness (hospitals, mobile health screenings, cancer prevention, etc.)
- Local Disaster Relief (ice storms, tornadoes, flooding, etc.)
- Sustainability and the Environment (conservation, etc.)
The results are in … and the choice is local disaster relief! Our branches are working together to select eight organizations – an organization local to each of GreenStone’s regions – to receive a donation of $2,500, their portion of the $20,000.
Stay tuned - the organizations will be announced soon.
