On Wednesday, November 13th, representatives from Whole Foods Market visited the Camden Children’s Garden (CCG) to present them with a $12,000 gift to support the work of the Camden City Garden Club (CCGC). The club provides educational and gardening programs at CCG and throughout Camden neighborhoods.
Since May 2012, Whole Foods has fostered a relationship with this organization, coordinating volunteer projects and providing financial support. In the fall of 2012, Whole Foods hosted a 5% day for CCGC, where they donated 5% of proceeds to the garden. That day, they raised $57,801.
Mike Devlin, president and co-founder of CCGC said partners like Whole Foods are hard to find, and he is thankful for their commitment.
