One of our core values at Crystal Spring Grocery is community.
Since opening in November of 2020, we realized it wasn’t enough for us to create a place for families, businesses, friends and neighbors to gather, eat, drink and enjoy delicious food. We also wanted to create a space for service and world change. Yup. We believe that the basic act of hospitality can change the world, one person at a time. We believe that food is love.
Starting in January 2023, we will ask our customers to nominate local non-profit organizations that they are passionate about to be our partners in service this year.
Beginning in February 2023 – January 2024, we will chose one local organization (details below) to partner with each month. That organization will work with our management team to create a plan to best utilize this partnership – either with free space for fundraising, round up donation program, or some other wonderful idea we haven’t even thought of yet. The goal is to promote the great things people in Roanoke are doing to serve others, and help them do their great work.
We want to serve our neighbors, so any organization nominated must be based in the Roanoke Valley, non political, and registered as a 501c3 with the IRS. We will require your 501c3 certification before we select your organization.
By January 25, 2023 – email firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on our FB / IG pages – with the name of the organization and 1 sentence (YES – only 1) as to how the organization is making a difference.
By Feb. 1, 2023 – we will post our 12 organizations and the months we plan to honor them. Stay tuned as we plan and create new ways to serve with these excellent local partners.
Come back to our events page to see how you can support these wonderful partners, and in turn, serve your neighbors.
We don’t know what the New Year will hold, but we promise it will be a year of delicious food, hospitality and serving others at Crystal Spring Grocery Co.
