Whole Foods Pittsburgh has announced a partnership with Hope for Ghana in the first quarter of 2016 as part of their Nickels For Non-Profits fundraising campaign. From January 18, 2016 until April 10, 2016 customers in the Pittsburgh and Wexford stores who use a recyclable bag while shopping will be given back a nickel with the opportunity to donate that nickel back to one of two community partners. Hope for Ghana is excited and very grateful to have been chosen by Whole Foods as one of those Nickels For Non-Profits partners.
Hope for Ghana will build its fourth library and computer lab in the village of Anloga at a school of 1000 primary school and junior high school students. Hope for Ghana’s newest project will proudly be dedicated to the memory of Fritz Cameron who in 1977, at the age of 28, spent several years in Ghana as a Peace Corps volunteer. Fritz Cameron’s job as a math teacher at a small school in Ghana was the prelude to an overseas teaching career that spanned over 37 years. Fritz left Ghana with a promise to return one day. After his untimely death in 2014, Fritz’s family wished to fulfill his promise and so The Fritz Cameron Library will serve to educate Ghanaian children in the same way that Fritz dedicated his life to educating and impacting children in Ghana nearly 40 years ago.
