Friends of Greyhounds photo at Whole Foods Market Coral Springs

For the past three months (July through September), Whole Foods Market in Coral Springs has been collecting dimes for our greyhounds! Customers brought their own bags when they shopped and Whole Foods passed along the money they saved on bags to us. At 10 cents a bag, it doesn’t seem like much. But as you can see, the dimes made dollars! This is the photo of the check presentation we did on Monday (Oct. 6) at the Market. They were awesome to do all of this – one dime at a time – for us. The management and staff at Whole Foods are GREYT friends! Can you imagine – That’s 11,000 plastic bags that didn’t go to a landfill! Plus it’s $1169. in FoG’s bank to help provide a new home for our Homeless Hounds. Pictured here are (left to right), Jerry Deitch, Pres, FoG ; Michelle Weaver, that’s me – VP, FoG; Cry Yahtzee, Kennel Representative and Sample dog; Kevin Kitching, Store Team Leader; and Jonny Rose, Marketing Team Leader and FoG Adopter since 2003. Many of you who used to come to the Hialeah kennel on weekends may remember Jonny’s mom and dad who used to come late in the afternoon to read or sing to the greyhounds in the kennel. Love and caring seem to run in the family! Many thanks to the Whole Team at Whole Foods for all of their support!

Love, Peace & Greyhounds,
Michelle
