Every month, we donate .05% of our Wednesday sales to an organization nominated and voted on by our member-owners.
That organization is also invited to come into Rising Tide and present information and takeaways for the public to be educated and aware of this organization’s efforts within our community.
We invite you to come in and shop on Wednesdays to support these amazing community and wonderful non-profit organizations.
