Book Drive to Benefit Whole Planet Foundation
The Newtonville Whole Foods Market is holding a book sale through April 15 to benefit the Whole Planet Foundation, a private, nonprofit organization established by Whole Foods Market. The foundation provides grants to microfinance institutions in Asia, Africa, the Americas and the Middle East, which in turn develop and offer micro-enterprise loan programs, training and other financial services to the self-employed poor.
Books for sale are located by the customer service booth, and Associate Store Team Leader Samuel Brownell encourages customers to donate books to the drive. “100 percent of the proceeds from the book drive benefit the foundation, so any books you would like to donate would be welcome,” he says.
Location: 647 Washington St., Newtonville. For more information, call 617-965- 2070 or visit WholeFoodsMarket.com/Stores/Newtonville.
