A Time to Give: Support Black Star’s 2015 Charity Organizations

In this season of giving, we’d like to encourage our Member-Owners and friends to contribute to any of Black Star Co-op’s chosen 2015 non-profit organizations. Below we’ve provided links to our selected charity organizations and their donations pages. Let’s actively do as much good for our community as possible, cooperatively!
