Charity of the Month
Mark Beck and Kiri Saftler have been Food Co-op members since 1973. Kiri was in an accident that totaled their van. With Mark being Quadriplegic it required them to replace the van at the cost of $60,000. Community support is helping to pay down this debt. Mark is a social person who volunteers and likes to enjoy the music and activities downtown when he can. Thank you for keeping him mobile and active in our community.
