Prairie Food Co-op Community Grocery

Community Investment Program Outreach Team

.

We are halfway to our overall funding goal of $4.4M and have never been closer to opening OUR store!  
.
But to meet our goal, we will need to connect with all of our Owners - and we need your help!
.
We are looking for additional volunteers to help us spread the word about the Fall campaign, store updates, and share information about how owners can invest in PFC.  We have volunteers returning from our spring campaign, but now we have even MORE owners to contact with this final push to fund our store.  
.
Can you help us by doing any of these activities with our CIP Outreach team? 
1. Emailing or texting Owners, with pre-drafted messages we will provide?
2. Calling Owners to share updates, exciting news about our store design, and your general enthusiasm for Prairie Food Coop?
3. Taking pre-scheduled calls from Owners who are excited to invest, and answering questions (or saying “let me find out and get back to you!”)?
.
We will provide you with messaging examples, training, a supportive team of other volunteers to ask questions and share ideas with, and cool technology to keep you organized and make use of your valuable time as a volunteer.  We are looking for at least 4 hours of your week beginning 9/24 through 11/15 - just 7 weeks!
.
This is NOT cold calling. Yes, it's nerve racking to imagine your first call to another PFC Owner, but you'll be rewarded (and calmed!) with great conversations shared with neighbors and community members, where we excitedly talked about OUR very owned store that will support local farmers and provide sustainable, organic food to all.  
.
We would love as many volunteers as possible, but we believe we need at least 15 more individuals to make our campaign successful.  If you can help, or if you might want to help but have questions you’d like to chat through first, please email Jacquelyn at [email protected]

Invest in a place to shop that you can call your own.
Together we really can do this.
