After a long, draining and surreal week in the Boston area, we’re determined to start this week off on a positive note. However, we would like to take this time to offer our support and condolences to all the victims and their families. And to offer our heartfelt thanks to all of the law enforcement, first responders and brave individuals who worked so hard last week in the aftermath of the marathon bombings. Keep in mind over the next few weeks that you can keep giving back by donating to the One Fund set up by the Governor and Mayor Menino and you can always, at any time, donate blood with the American Red Cross.
In the spirit of giving back, we here at the Fruit Center Marketplace are celebrating Earth Day with all of our wonderful customers. If you come into either of our stores today and use your reusable shopping bags: we’ll donate $2 per customer to Sustainable South Shore. Sustainable South Shore is a multi-town advocacy group committed to helping area residents conserve energy, protect the environment and live sustainable lives. For more information on their work go here and to find out more about how the Fruit Center supports organizations in our local community, check out our website and click on the Giving Back tab.
Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by our parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
