Buy Groceries at Whole Foods on September 16th, and Support Creative Youth Development

On September 16th, Whole Foods will donate 5% of net sales from all their Manhattan and Brooklyn Markets to three nonprofits that provide arts programming to New York City communities. Creative Art Works is honored to be one of those beneficiaries.

 

The CAW Mural commissioned by Whole Foods for their recently opened Upper East Side Market

Representatives from Creative Art Works will be at three Whole Foods locations on September 16th - Chelsea, the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side - to share stories about the difference CAW makes in the lives of young people. However, shoppers can visit any NYC Whole Foods Market on September 16th and know that 5% of net sales will go towards promoting community-based arts organizations in New York City.

Youth Employees meet with Whole Foods Marketing Staff as part of the CAW program "The Art of Business and the Business of Art."

Visitors to the Upper East Side Whole Foods will be able to see a diptych painted by CAW Youth Employees during a 2013 Public Art Youth Employment Program supported by Whole Foods. These paintings are hung on the second floor above the escalators. The mural illustrates Whole Foods commitment to healthy living.

Locations include: Bowery, Chelsea, Columbus Circle, Midtown East, Tribeca, Union Square, Upper East Side, Upper West Side, and Third and 3rd Brooklyn. To find the Whole Foods market closest to you, CLICK HERE.
