Co-op Till Tape Program supports dozens of community organizations



It has become one of the most dependable fundraisers in the valley, and with its most recent disbursement, The Co-op Till Tape Program can brag of an investment of almost $200,000 into the community.
    The program, which has been ongoing since 2000, issued cheques to the numerous organizations that use the fundraiser. On February 5, they distributed $11,312.54 to participating organizations. This brings its nine-year total to $196,048.99.
    The Till Tape Program is simple. A shopper can collect their receipts when they shop at the Drumheller Co-op. They then turn the till tapes over to the community group of their choice. The group then submits them to the Drumheller Co-op and in turn the Co-op pays out one per cent of the total, not including GST.  The Co-op disperses cheques twice a year.
