Whole Foods Loves Your Library!

Yesterday, out of the blue, we received an e-mail from our local Whole Foods Market. It said:

I am pleased to let you know that we have selected “The Friends of Reston Library” to be a recipient in this quarter’s “Nickels for Non-Profits” donation.

Each quarter we designate two local non-profits and place a donation box at the front of the store. Customers usually receive a nickel for bringing their own reusable grocery bag but we give them the option of taking a wooden nickel instead and dropping it in the box to aid these charities. We will have “The Friends of Reston Library” on this box for at least the next 90 days and then donate the amount given by customers.

Please encourage anyone who comes to shop at our store to take the bag redemption in the form of a wooden nickel and drop it in your slot!

So now you know what to do!

1. Shop Whole Foods

2. Take your reusable bag in and pick up a wooden nickel

3. Drop it in the Friends box!

Thank you to Whole Foods (who also support us during our Semi-Annual Book Sales) and thank you to our patrons and supporters!

The store is located at Plaza America, 11660 Plaza America Dr., Reston. For more info, click here.
