The local non profit emergency shelter for children has been chosen to be the recipient of the market’s 5% Day on Thursday, January 14, 2016.
The store will donate 5% of all purchases made that day to Kids in Crisis, which recently announced a cut in $750,000 of funding from the State of Connecticut.
Whole Foods Market Greenwich is located at 90 East Putnam Avenue and is open 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Representatives from Kids in Crisis will be on hand to share information about the agency’s emergency shelter and community programs. Kids in Crisis (www.kidsincrisis.org) is Connecticut’s only free, round-the-clock agency providing emergency shelter, crisis counseling and community educational programs for children of all ages and families dealing with a wide range of crises – domestic violence, mental health and family problems, substance abuse, economic difficulties and more.
Since its founding in 1978, Kids in Crisis has helped more than 132,000 Connecticut children and families; last year, 6,184 children and families received assistance from the organization.
