One Dime at a Time Fundraiser for Providence Wildlife Rehabilitation
Sunday, September 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.

Forks Over Knives Screening
Wednesday, September 18th
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Held out-of-store at the Carmel Clay Public Library: 55 4th Avenue Southeast, Carmel, IN 46032 , FREE

Join us for the screening of Forks Over Knives. Learn how you can improve your health and the health of our planet by changing your eating habits. Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by eliminating animal-based and processed foods. You can also taper your greenhouse-gas footprint by eating more plant based foods. Did you know that global meat production produces more ozone depleting gases than every plane, train and car combined?! After the movie, Sarah Smith of Whole Foods Market will answer questions on how you can transition to eating lower on the food chain.

Free Raffle for Door Prizes!

Whole Foods Market is proud to team up with the Carmel Green Initiative & the Carmel Clay Public Library for this educational program. Together we can make Carmel, and the world, a more beautiful and healthier place to live.
