Whole Foods Market - Garden of Hope Project
Saturday, September 7, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
Calling all kids (12 & up) and families to join us for a fun volunteer project at the Give Kids The World Village Garden of Hope.
We're excited to roll up our sleeves to help give this garden the same TLC the Village does to their very special families. This will be a family-friendly, 2-hour project with tasks for everyone ages1 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!
Also, 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!
Cheers, Vicky Santamaria, Marketing Team Leader & Shannon Sherman, Healthy Eating Specialist
