Whole Foods Market - Olivia Park Garden Party (Kids’ Day of Service)
Thursday, September 19, 2013 from 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM (PDT)
Calling all kids and families to join us for a fun family volunteer project at the Olivia Park Elementary School Garden in South Everett. We're excited to roll up our sleeves to help harvest and maintain the garden. 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. We'll have plenty of tasks and activites on-site for little ones whose attention may wander. The best part is being all together!
After the garden party, we will all have a "make a rainbow" dinner inside the school. This is where we'll have a magical build-your-own salad-bar for kids and grown-ups, plus all the fixings. Join us in modeling the fun of "eating a rainbow" in honor of the Whole Kids Foundation! Please join us for a fun-filled afternoon of service and inspiration as we celebrate healthy communities and healthy eating together!
Thank you again and look forward to seeing you soon!
