Village Books and Paper Dreams is proud to Round It Up, our amazingly simple giving program created to support local nonprofits! Each season, we'll feature a different nonprofit partner that will benefit when you choose to Round It Up, increasing your purchase to the nearest dollar. The non-profit will receive the Round It Up difference. Your change can really make a change!
To participate: As you pay for your purchase, just tell your Village Books or Paper Dreams sales associate that you'd like to Round It Up for local nonprofits, and we'll take it from there!
For far too many families in the Whatcom community, hunger is a real and ever-present struggle. Finding enough fresh, healthy, and affordable food is a constant concern from one day to the next. For the last 45 years, the hardworking staff and dedicated volunteers at the Bellingham Food Bank have been working tirelessly to to meet the community need for good food. Every week, they pull their efforts together to feed over 3,500 Whatcom County families. In Bellingham alone, more than 1,350 families make a weekly trip to the food bank, and nearly 20 percent of its residents regularly use the food banks' services. Why donate funds? Because the food bank can buy food for a lot less than you and your friends can. They can take a $100 donation and turn it into 1,000 pounds of food. That's a good thing for Whatcom County!
Bellingham Food Bank partners with and supports food banks throughout Whatcom County, including Project Hope which serves families living within the Lynden School District. Round It Up donations in Lynden will go directly to Project Hope Food Bank.
