DETROIT: With Spring just around the corner, there is much on the horizon for Palmer Park, one of Detroit’s treasured urban oases. This is your chance to shop at Whole Foods Detroit, one of the newest additions to the city community, and support one of your favorite local nonprofits, People for Palmer Park, at the same time! 

On Wednesday, March 19, 2014, Whole Foods Detroit will donate five percent of the entire day’s sales to People for Palmer Park. From store open to close – 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. – patrons can come to the Midtown Detroit Whole Foods Market, shop and support People for Palmer Park, the nonprofit dedicated to the preservation, recreation and revitalization of Detroit’s Palmer Park, for the good of all. 

As a part of the quarterly held Whole Foods Market Giving Program 5% Days, People for Palmer Park was chosen as one of the just four local nonprofits that will benefit from this program at the Detroit store this year. 

“Whole Foods Market’s Store Level Giving Program is dedicated to helping nonprofit organizations in our stores’ local communities that have limited budgets and big hearts,” the 5% Day application says. “Our focus is to support innovative groups that strive to make the world a better place.”

Buying your groceries on this day will support all aspects of People for Palmer Park’s operation to restore Palmer Park to its former splendor, future public programming, and the establishment of an urban farm within the park. 

“People for Palmer Park is very grateful to Whole Foods for selecting our organization to be the recipient of a Customer Appreciation Day from its new Detroit location,” Rochelle Lento, president of the People for Palmer Park board said. 

“This presents an exciting opportunity for our organization to raise awareness of our efforts to revitalize Palmer Park, bring back recreational programming, develop an urban farm while maintaining our apple orchards and focusing on safety/security issues in the Park. How wonderful that we can raise awareness and raise needed funds for our initiatives at the same time!,” she said.

So on Wednesday, March 19, remember to get out your shopping lists and head to Midtown Detroit’s Whole Foods Market to stock up on your healthy groceries and support your People for Palmer Park!
