St. Louis, MO, March 29, 2018 — During the second quarter of 2018 (April-June), customers at the Central West End Whole Foods Market will be able to make a donation to Forest Park Forever when they check out. The One Dime at a Time program provides an incentive to customers to eliminate single-use plastic bags and develop stronger communities at the same time. At the register, customers will have the option to receive a 10 cent per bag refund off their order total, or they can choose to donate it to Forest Park Forever.
“We are honored that our Central West End neighbors at Whole Foods Market invited us to participate in their One Dime at a Time program,” said Forest Park Forever Senior Vice President, Development John O’Gorman. “We are always eager to strengthen relationships with neighboring businesses, and this is a great opportunity for customers to support Forest Park.”
Representatives from Forest Park Forever will be on site at the Central West End location (4577 W Pine Blvd) from 4:00-7:00 p.m. on April 20, May 18 and June 15 to engage with customers. They will be excited to share the organization’s mission to restore, maintain and sustain Forest Park, in partnership with the City of St. Louis, as one of America’s greatest urban public parks, now and forever.
