Calling all kids and families to join us for a fun fall volunteer project at the the Edna Maguire Children's Garden  http://www.ednamaguire.org/

We're excited to roll up our sleeves to help prepare the garden for winter with our partners at the school. This will be a family-friendly, 2-hour project with tasks for everyone ages 2 and up!

Below, please find a volunteer job description and a list of items that may be helpful to bring on the day of the project. It's our goal to make your experience fun, uplifting, and kid-friendly. This is an opportunity for customers, team members, and kids to partner together in service to our community. . The best part is being all together!

We will be serving lunch after the event.  Join us in modeling the fun of "eating a rainbow" in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation! Please join us for a fun-filled day of service and inspiration as we celebrate healthy communities and healthy eating together!
