Change for Good at Blue Hill Co-op

Round Up for Your Community

We invite you to donate your change to worthy causes in the community. 

How does it work? When you make a purchase at the register and the total amount is something like $7.38 you can choose to round up and pay an even $8.00. The extra $0.62 will be donated to the organization we’re supporting that month. Your small change can make a big difference. 

We’re proud to have raised $21,811.74 for local organizations in 2023. Thank you for your help in making this year’s Change For Good round-up donations a success.

If you belong to a local organization that serves the Blue Hill Peninsula, we invite you to apply for the 2025 Change for Good program.

June's Recipient: The Simmering Pot

The Simmering Pot combines the pleasure of eating wholesome, delicious food with a commitment to serving the greater Blue Hill Peninsula community.

This is accomplished through the production of a weekly free meal, available to anyone, regardless of income. Founded in 2009, the Simmering Pot is an all-volunteer organization that, up until the pandemic struck in 2020, primarily focused on offering a free community meal every Monday at the Congregational Church.
