Whole Foods Market - Woodway & Briargrove Elementary (Kid's Day of Service)
Friday, September 13, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CDT)
Calling all kids and families to join us for a fun fall volunteer project with the Briargrove Elementary Roadrunners!
We're excited to roll up our sleeves to help prepare a butterfly garden with our partners at the school. This will be a family-friendly, 2-hour project (feel free to come and go as you please) to help the Roadrunners plant citrus trees, build fence lines, and add buttefly-friendly plant to their garden area.
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.
Also, post-project, 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 day of service and inspiration as we celebrate healthy communities and healthy eating together!
Thank you again and look forward to seeing you soon!
