The Green Store’s 29th Anniversary Celebration
November 25 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
On Friday, November 25, The Green Store celebrates its 29 th Anniversary by giving back to the community! Every shopper will have the opportunity to transform 29% (for 29 years) of the cost of their purchase into a donation to one or more of three chosen non-profits. You make the
purchase, and the Green Store makes the donation! We are so grateful to our community for your patronage and support over the years. And we are
always amazed at the local non-profits that provide care and rehabilitation for injured and sick creatures; conserve and maintain beautiful local environments; and provide nourishing and welcoming community space for people in need.
We are so excited to raise money for:
- Avian Haven was founded as a nonprofit wild bird rehabilitation center dedicated to the return of injured and orphaned wild birds of all species to their natural roles in the wild. In 2021 Avian Haven admitted 3800 wild birds and 70 turtles from all over the state. Rescuers bring birds directly here, and we also have a network of more than 200 volunteers who will travel to pick them up. Whether a hummingbird or an eagle, a tiny painted turtle, or a massive snapper, When Mainers find injured or orphaned birds or turtles, they know to turn to Avian Haven for help.
- Friends of Sears Island (FOSI) is a small, volunteer-led nonprofit whose mission is to support the permanent protection of Sears Island's environmental and cultural resources, and to encourage low-impact recreational use of the island. At 941 acres, Sears Island is one of the largest undeveloped islands on the Eastern Seaboard and is open free of charge to the public. Volunteers maintain about 4-1/2 miles of trails with informational signage and provide safe public access to the beaches.
- The Belfast Soup Kitchen strives to provide a safe community where guests can find food, comfort, and hope for the future in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. They work toward eliminating chronic hunger for people and families in Waldo County not only by offering nutritious food, but also by connecting to resources and educational opportunities to help address the circumstances surrounding food insecurity. The Belfast
Soup Kitchen serves all guests that come, with no qualifications, in an open and welcoming community atmosphere.
Representatives from these organizations will be on hand on Friday, Nov. 25, from 2-4 to talk with you about their programs. Please stop in to say hello, enjoy some refreshments, make a purchase, and donate 29% of the value of your purchase to one or more of our receiving organizations!
