Grocery Shopping for Good
Hold off on your grocery shopping for just a few days. Save up your list for Sept. 18 and then head to Whole Foods Market in Mt. Pleasant. Your purchases that day will benefit the Parks Conservancy. We have been selected as the beneficiary of Whole Foods Market 5% Day and will receive 5% of the day’s net sales on Sept. 18.
We’re excited to partner up with Whole Foods Market and promote our shared mission of community gardening, healthy eating and appreciating the environment around us. While you’re shopping, stop and say “Hi” to the Conservancy staff and volunteers who will be at Whole Foods Market that day sharing information about the Conservancy’s mission of further beautifying City of Charleston parks and green spaces and its community gardening projects.
Shoppers will have an opportunity to answer trivia questions and win prizes while learning about growing cool season crops. Plus, any shopper spending $100 or more can be entered into a drawing for one free ticket to Party for the Parks — Amusement on the Avenue, a street-festival style fundraiser on Sept. 22 at Colonial Lake. Party for the Parks tickets also will be available for purchase.
Whole Foods Market created 5% Days to give back to the local community by providing support to nonprofit organizations whose programs directly benefit the communities surrounding the store. Whole Foods Market is located at 923 Houston Northcutt Blvd. in Mt. Pleasant.
