Calling all kids and families to join us for a FUN Fall volunteer project at the local non-profit Wattles Organic Farm located in Hollywood, Los Angeles September 8, 2013 from 10:00am-12:00pm!
We're excited to roll up our sleeves to help our local partners in our community through community service and volunteer work to support the visions of truly inspiring grass roots causes. 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 oppurtunity for Whole Foods Market West Hollywood customers, store team members, and kids to partner together in service to our community. We'll have plenty of tasks and games on-site for little ones whose attention may wander. The best part is being all together!
Also, we'll have a FREE magical build-you-own salad-bar for kids and grown-ups, plus all of the fixings from 10am-12pm. Join us in modeling the fun of "eating the 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!
Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you soon!
