Whole Foods Market just opened a new store in Newport Beach! To celebrate they are holding a Community Giving Day on October 17th. Whole Foods Markets hold Community Giving Days to help support and better communities they are involved in throughout the nation. They will be donating 5% of that day’s net sales to the Environmental Nature Center (ENC). This will go a long way in helping us provide fun and educational programs for adults and children.
Since opening a store in Tustin in 2007, Whole Foods Market has single-handedly donated an astounding $50,000 to Orange County-based community groups! Whole Foods has also gone on record to say they, “… enthusiastically support the valuable work the ENC is doing to promote the importance of nature and science in the Orange County community.” We feel proud to have such a community-oriented and environmentally conscious company supporting us!
So don’t forget to support the ENC and do your grocery shopping at the Whole Foods in Newport Beach on October 17th! – J. Sattari, ENC Intern
