Help Raise Money for the Coast Guard Station at Wendy Park

When you shop at Whole Foods this Wednesday, 5% of the sales will go to Wendy Park and renovations at the Historic Coast Guard Station at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River.

Hello Friends of Wendy Park,
On July 25, 2007 Whole Foods will donate 5% of their sales to the Wendy Park Foundation. Whole Foods was Founded in 1980 as one small store in Austin, Texas, Whole Foods Market® is now the world's leading retailer of natural and organic foods, with 196 stores in North America and the United Kingdom. To date Whole Foods Market remains uniquely mission driven: We're highly selective about what we sell, dedicated to stringent Quality Standards, and committed to sustainable agriculture.
When you shop with Whole Foods Market next Wednesday, 5% of sales for the day will go to the Wendy Park Foundation to assist in the acquisition of solar lighting & an irrigation system at the U.S. Coast Guard Station (A historic fusion of bold architecture and resilient nature). Recent efforts of the Wendy Park Foundation has made the historical site accessible for the first time in over 30 years, except for one summer in the early 90's when a restaurant operated out of the station. The Wendy Park Foundation hopes to work with the City of Cleveland and local residents and businesses to restore this important piece of Cleveland's history that is nationally registered!
