Whole Foods in Tempe is participating in a VERY cool fundraiser today to help this year’s Tempe Leadership class raise money and awareness for their class project, Shower Power.
Here’s the deal… Shop Wednesday February 24th at Whole Foods in Tempe located at 5120 S Rural ( at Baseline ) and 5% of the proceeds will benefit Shower Power.
Shower Power is a project that will provide showers to homeless individuals who participate in the Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program (I-HELP), which provides overnight shelter to the working homeless. Basically, it is a mobile-shower facility that will enable working homeless in our community to take showers and help them to get and retain jobs while moving towards self- sufficiency.
Learn more about this awesome project at the Tempe Leadership class XXV web site. Oh, and don’t miss the salad and hot food bar on sale today at the Tempe Whole Foods for just $5.99! I hope to see you there!
That seems like a great event. I have been looking for some ways to help homeless here in Denver, as with our mild weather, we typically have many people who come here that are in need. Great idea and glad to see whole foods sponsoring.
