Meet our One Dime at a Time Recipient:  Marshall Movement Foundation

The Marshall Movement Foundation has partnered with Girls in the Know to develop The Marshall Mentor Program, a character education mentoring program that helps youth understand the importance of empathy, strength, courage, perseverance, kindness and forgiveness and challenges them to put these traits into action. The program utilizes high school aged female mentors to deliver Marshall the Miracle Dog's cornerstone messages. By supporting their younger peers the mentors are developing as future leaders in their communities. For additional information, go to www.marshallthemiracledog.com. Beginning this month, watch for photos on the floor of team members who have volunteered to participate in “Mullets for Marshall,” a creative and fun fundraiser for the Marshall Movement Foundation!

Whole Kids Foundation Campaign

Whole Kids Foundation's (WKF) mission is to support schools and inspire families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. Given the right opportunities, kids will get excited about fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and other nutritious whole foods. The Foundation’s goals help kids learn to love fresh, nutritious, whole foods, increase access to and consumption of these foods in schools, inspire families to prepare and share these foods at home, encourage community action that supports healthier kids, and create support tools for educators who play a vital role in modeling and teaching healthy choices. WKF also provides schools with salad bars through their partnership with Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools, provide grants for school gardens and related programs, offer cooking and nutrition education for school teachers and staff, and support The Lunch Box online tools, which help cafeterias transition to serving more fresh, whole foods. During the first 2 weeks in September we will be collecting funds at the registers as well as hosting several in-store fundraising events to help this amazing cause. Please join us in improving the health of all children by donating to the Whole Kids Foundation.
