Nominations open to thank someone through Co-op Helps
May 5, 2020

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Heritage Co-op has been on the front lines delivering the essentials needed by our Co-op members, customers and communities.

Now, we want to help say thank you to somebody making your life a little easier or a little brighter. Tell us about someone you know that has gone above and beyond to help their friends, neighbours or community during the pandemic and they could receive a $100 Co-op Gift Card. This could be anyone from a frontline worker to someone down the street delivering baking to their neighbours.

Co-op will be giving out up to 1,250 gift cards across Western Canada. Nominations will be accepted May 5 to 19 at

“Our community is stronger today because of the contributions people are making throughout this pandemic,” said Lorne Zacharias, General Manager of Heritage Co-op. “We continue our efforts to serve our Co-op members and customers, while also supporting initiatives that benefit our community throughout this challenge.”

On behalf of local co-ops like ours, Federated Co-operatives Limited is making a $250,000 donation to provincial food banks in Western Canada. This donation is over and above what Heritage Co-op regularly contributes to the local food bank in our community as well as the Good Buy to Hunger Program.

Our Co-op has also provided additional support to our community, including matching donations made to local food banks at our gas bar and food store check outs from April 23rd to May 7th up to $5000.
