We are super-excited and proud to announce our partnership with Restore the Shore, Hometown Heroes and 94.3 The Point to bring you RESTORE THE SHORE WEEKEND, taking place Saturday and Sunday, March 23d & 24th in all 3 of our stores. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for local non-profit Hometown Heroes for their Sandy relief efforts – are you in?
We will be donating a percentage of our weekend sales from all 3 stores – 2 days, 3 stores – to Hometown Heroes and 100% of that will go to helping local people affected by Sandy. But we can’t do it and reach the goal without you. We invite you to stop in, shop up and stock up, knowing that your participation will go towards helping the families in our own communities, our backyards, local people we all know who have lost their homes and have had to relocate, have been struggling trying to buy a new furnace and hot water heater, drywall, schoolbooks, you name it – all due to that fateful day when Superstorm Sandy made landfall and changed lives forever.
We urge you to not only come in for the usual, but to take the opportunity to stock up on frozen and non-perishables, things you know will get used and know that your actions will directly help those around us.
We’ll have some fun, too! the crew from 94.3 The Point radio station will be in Shrewsbury on Saturday, 3/23 and in Ocean on Sunday, both from 11-1 giving out prizes, hosting games and giveaways. We’ll also be giving away limited edition Restore the Shore reusable bags and if you spend over $50, you’ll get a raffle ticket to win a family pack of beach badges to the Jersey Shore (which beaches to choose from will be determined closer to the season). There will be huge sales and lots of food sampling and demos on our days with the Point; plus, did we mention the Juice Bar official Restore the Shore drink for the weekend? Follow our Facebook for a chance to name it!
Together, we can make a difference in a lot of lives, so come out on March 23rd & 24th and let’s DO IT!
A little more about our charities: Continue reading
If you subscribe to our weekly customer newsletter you may have read about a local charity we recently partnered with, Kick Cancer Overboard. Kick Cancer Overboard is a non-profit whose mission is to provide free cruises to those affected by cancer and to their families, to give them a break to enjoy and celebrate life. Through this wonderful non-profit and thanks to our customers who participate in the Dean’s List, we were able to send brave cancer survivor and amazing person Cathy D., her sister and mom, who cared for her all through her illness, on a 5-night cruise to Bermuda. Cathy is just so overjoyed, grateful and happy; she can’t wait to spend some quality time with her family who were there for her through thick and thin and never gave up. We couldn’t be more thrilled for them, they really deserve it. She promises to send us a postcard 🙂
The reason we are able to help people like Cathy, non-profits like Mary’s Place by the Sea and the Monmouth County SPCA (to name a few) is because of the generosity of those of you who have chosen to be on the Dean’s List. What is the Dean’s List?
We offer all new peeps our Customer Advantage Card, which gives you 10% off all vitamins not on sale, signs you up for our newsletter and special perks. When you spend $400, you are mailed a card good for $10 in any of our stores – unless you have opted into the Dean’s List. Dean’s Listers will receive a card for $9, the dollar taken out goes into our Dean’s List fund and is matched by Dean’s. It’s a way you can give to charities and know you will make a difference. Like, you know how when you donate to a telethon or something, not that that’s bad, but you never really know where the money is going? With the Dean’s List, you know it’s going straight to local charities right here in our community.
The best part about the Dean’s List is the more people we have signed up, the more people we can help and the more lives we can touch. Are you signed up? If you have a Customer Advantage Card and want to join the Dean’s List, just let us know on your next visit or drop us an email at info @ deansnaturalfoodmarket.com and we can sign you up in a jiffy.
Thank you again to all you Dean’s Listers out there – and Cathy thanks you!
Cathy D is going to Kick Cancer Overboard!
