SEED: Seward Co-op's Donation Program

August SEED recipient: Sunshine Tree Child Development Center


Sunshine Tree Child Development Center is a safe, educational environment where children thrive and are equipped with tools to be successful and productive as they begin their life journey. The center is also a historic landmark on the 38th street corridor as the first child care center solely owned and operated by an African American female in the city of Minneapolis

So far this month, 36,610 customers have donated $16,005 to Sunshine Tree Development Center.

ImageFor more than 45 years, Seward Co-op has been committed to giving back to our community. In 2011, we introduced SEED, a new way for customers to participate in this commitment. This simple yet powerful community giving program allows customers to “round-up” their grocery or cafe bill for recipient organizations that share our commitment to a healthy community.
