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.
I thank the entire team at Whole Foods Pittsburgh for their ongoing generosity in our community and overseas, and for sharing the vision of Hope for Ghana and supporting its mission to bring hope and opportunity to children in Ghana who are yearning for a brighter future. I am most humbled that Hope for Ghana was chosen for this distinctive partnership among so many worthy non-profit charities in Pittsburgh.
Finally, as I reflect on an amazing 2015 for Hope for Ghana, let me share my enormous gratitude for everyone who has joined me on this journey. Whole Foods joins a group of generous donors from around the world, from individuals in America and Europe to larger corporations including Chick-fil-A, Premier Medical Associates, FC St. Pauli, Webb’s World of Fitness, St. Bruno Catholic Church and Daree Salam African Market. To all of you I remain forever grateful. You continue to impact the lives of thousands of children in Ghana everyday.
Have a happy and healthy new year.
