BARNSTABLE, Mass. /Massachusetts Newswire/ — Cape Wildlife Center, one of New England’s largest and most diverse wildlife rehabilitation facilities, has been selected as the featured charity for the Tuesday, Sept. 15 Whole Foods Market Hyannis “5% Day.” Every purchase made in the store that day benefits Cape Wildlife Center, which will receive 5% of that day’s net sales.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for people to help imperiled animals just by shopping at Whole Foods in Hyannis on Sept. 15,” noted Cape Wildlife Center Director Deborah Robbins Millman. “Five percent of everything sold – from a pack of gum to a loaded shopping cart – will benefit Cape Wildlife Center! Every purchase will generate much-needed funds to care for our wildlife patients and help the community with wildlife-related issues.”
Cape Wildlife Center representatives will be present at Whole Foods Market during operating hours to answer questions about wildlife and about the Center’s many programs and services. Whole Foods Market, located at 990 Iyannough Road, Hyannis, will be open that day from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
“We can’t stress enough how important this event is to Cape Wildlife Center,” Millman said. “Please come to Whole Foods Hyannis on Sept. 15 and help us out! We will benefit and it won’t cost you a penny more than you would otherwise spend shopping there!”
