Change 4 Change, with Eureka Natural Foods

The closer it gets, the more excited we get! Humboldt County Beekeepers association is very excited and glad that Eureka Natural Foods has decided to honor us and make HCBA the grateful recipient of their Change 4 Change program. This program is a way for an organization or non profit to raise money for an event or raise money and awareness for their organization.
Change 4 Change will be held at both Eureka Natural Food store locations from 9am to 7pm the entire week of 8/15/2021 (until 8/21/2021). We will have an observation hive on Saturday at both locations as well as seed packets to give away, recipes including honey, educational handouts and a variety of other interesting bee-related items.
We NEED volunteers to engage with the customers so they will say YES when they are asked by the cashier if they would ’round up’ when they are at the check out. This is an easy way for the customer to donate, and studies have shown that the more volunteers who are able to animate the table with their presence/knowledge/personality the better the outcome.
A sign up genius is available for you to volunteer, in two hour increments, to greet and talk with the public at our tables in Eureka OR McKinleyville at:… (Eureka) and at (McKinleyville).

Thank you!! A fun time will be had by all!!
