Children’s Story Time

Children enjoying story time at the Takoma Park Store

Every Wednesday 10:30-11:15 AM
(Cancellations will be posted here)

Children's Story Time is held in the lower level of our store every Wednesday at 10:30 am, and it usually runs until somewhere around 11:15 or 11:30 am.

We would love for you to join us for songs and stories in English, Spanish, and French (when the appropriate Story Tellers are available). Please use the back entrance to the store in order to avoid strollers, carriages, prams, etc. on the stairs.

This is a FREE event for our community. All ages are welcome when accompanied by an adult.

2015 "Poker Chip" Charities

Poker chips are given out at the registers for each reusable grocery bag a customer brings with them. The customer may then pick one or more organizations to donate their chip(s) to. TPSS Co-op will donate $0.05 to the organization for each poker chip received. Customers who come without their own grocery bags are charged $0.05 per bag by TPSS. The Co-op will donate all bag proceeds to the charity of our choosing at the end of each quarter.

In 2015, we will proudly support the following local charities:

Miriam's Kitchen

Miriam’s Kitchen is committed to ending chronic homelessness in D.C. by establishing meaningful relationships with chronically homeless individuals, connecting them with permanent supportive housing, and ensuring they have the necessary support to remain in housing. We advocate for permanent supportive housing as a long-term solution, while meeting short-term needs by providing healthy meals and high-quality social services to more than 4,300 chronically homeless individuals each year.

Capital Area Food Bank

The mission of the Capital Area Food Bank is to feed those who suffer from hunger in the Washington metro area by acquiring food and distributing it through its network of partner agencies; and educating, empowering and enlightening the community about the issues of hunger and nutrition. CAFB is a member of Feeding America, a national network of 200 food banks.

Crossroads Community Food Network

Crossroads Community Food Network is working to improve community health through local food access programs and education for at-risk populations in Maryland’s Takoma/Langley Crossroads area and beyond. Through our programs, we aim to improve access to fresh, local, healthy food through innovative programs and models mutually supportive of those who grow our food and those who eat it.

Young Voices For The Planet

Young Voices for the Planet is a film series featuring young people who are making a difference! They are shrinking the carbon footprint of their homes, schools and communities. You, too, can do something about global warming! As Alec Loorz says, “Kids Have Power.” Young Voices for the Planet is a project of Young Voices on Climate Change, a 501 (c) (3) tax deductible organization.

Real Food For Kids Montgomery

RFKM's Mission: To mobilize parents, students, educators and community members to promote policies, practices and educational opportunities that improve the food environment and general health and well-being of students in the Montgomery County Public Schools.

Takoma Park Volunteer Fire Department

The Takoma Park Volunteer Fire Department was founded in 1894 - the first organized fire department in Montgomery County. The department has been based at Carroll Ave and Philadelphia Avenue since 1927, with the current building opening in 2010. The volunteers of TPVFD work alongside the career personnel of the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service as both EMTs and firefighters, providing emergency response to Takoma Park and the wider area. The department has seen a massive increase in new members recently, making support for increased training vital.
