One Dime at a Time Fundraiser for Providence Wildlife Rehabilitation
Monday, July 1st
8:00 AM - 10:00 PM
Whole Foods Market Carmel, FREE

Our One Dime at a Time Fundraiser means you can bring your own bags and donate the bag credit to a local non-profit! This program provides an incentive to reuse grocery bags and develop stronger communities. At the register, you have the option to receive a 10¢ per reusable bag refund, or you can choose to donate your refund to that month’s selected local non-profit organization.

The two Indiana stores are delighted to support July, August & September’s recipient: Providence Wildlife Rehabilitation. Providence Wildlife Rehabilitation is an Indianapolis-based, all-volunteer organization, dedicated to the care, recovery and release of orphaned and/or injured wildlife. They admit more than 1,200 animals annually (primarily from Central Indiana) and rely solely on public donations to cover expenses. Funds will be used to build a flight testing & conditioning area for recovering raptors working towards release. If you want to volunteer or need assistance regarding animal rescue, please contact 317.902.3825, info@providencewildlife.org or www.providencewildlife.org.
