The Market at Fairhaven has donated $2,500 through its new pilot program, Fairhaven Neighbors. The program is meant to promote local organizations. Seven southside organizations received money.
Whatcom Hospice Foundation received $1,154, and Larrabee Elementary School PTA, Happy Valley Elementary School PTA, Sehome High School PTSA, Fairhaven Middle School PTSA, Lowell Elementary School PTA and the Happy Valley Neighborhood Association received the remainder of the money.
Donations occur when a customer at the market has a purchase larger then $20. A special receipt is printed, which can be placed in a box at the front of the store with one of the above organizations’ names on it. The amount of money an organization receives from the program is based on how many receipts are placed in its box over a four-month period.
