Capers Community Markets
Capers Community Markets 5% Day was created to give back to local communities by providing support to non-profit organizations that work to benefit the communities surrounding Capers stores. On June 20, 2007, 5% of all Capers pre-tax sales were directed to Pacific Salmon Foundation.
"Capers 5% Day recognizes the important work of non-profit organizations in our local communities," says Aron Bjornson, Capers Marketing Manager. "We are pleased to support Pacific Salmon Foundation and their efforts to restore and conserve wild Pacific salmon for the benefit of all communities in B.C."
Proceeds from Capers 5% Day will support community-driven salmon conservation and restoration projects in B.C. The funds will support volunteers working on the ground to restore the streams and rivers that support wild Pacific salmon populations.
"Pacific Salmon Foundations is proud to have Capers as a partner in salmon conservation," said Dr. Brian Riddell, president & CEO of the Foundation. "Capers generous donation in support of salmon conservation demonstrates their commitment to local communities and our environment."
