Marquette Food Co-op Hosts United Way Day

An area nonprofit organization is feeling the giving spirit of the Christmas season. It’s helping out another local nonprofit this weekend.

The Marquette Food Co–op is holding a United Way Day this Saturday.

The Co–op will donate one percent of its total sales proceeds for the day to the united way of Marquette County.

Dead River Coffee will have coffee for sale in the store.

All of the coffee proceeds will go to the united way.

And some live music should make the shopping more pleasant.

The food Co–op has also signed a purchase agreement for the building on Washington Street that Northern Stationers is in. The Co–op intends to close on the sale in February. And it hopes to move in either next year or in 2013.
