I’ve lived and worked as a commercial real estate agent in Boston’s Metro South area for many years. Because I service a number of communities in the greater South of Boston vicinity, I’ve become familiar with a number of local events that are held all over the area. Because my focus is on commercial properties, I am also aware of a great deal of the local businesses and what they do to help their individual communies. Next Tuesday, the Whole Foods in Hingham is doing their part to help those in need in their neighborhood.
Between the hours of 8:00am-10:00pm, 5% of the profits made from grocery shoppers will go towards two local organizations that feed the homeless in Boston’s Metro South area. Father Bill’s in Quincy and MainSpring in Brockton serve about 600 meals per day to 400 people, on average. With the cold weather just on the horizon, there is no doubt that those numbers will increase.
Both shelters are known for not turning anybody away. With the help of local businesses in Boston’s Metro South area, such as the Hingham Whole Foods, these local organizations can continue to help feed people in need on a regular basis and have the resources to not turn away hungry area residents. The Whole Foods in Hingham has been partnered with Father Bill’s and MainSpring for the past year, and their efforts have been instrumental in continuing to serve those in need within the entire Metro South area community.
This Tuesday, you can do your part! Whether you need to stock up on some snacks for the office or do grocery shopping for the family, you can shop at Hingham’s Whole Foods next week and know that you’re making a difference to those in our community who really need it. As always, it’s nice to see a local business think about how they can do their part to give back to their community.
When small, local businesses in Boston’s Metro South area participate in fundraisers like these, I always support them. Not only is it an excellent opportunity to help and give back to your community, but it’s also a great way to give your small business more publicity. If you are new to any given area or community, your first order of business should be to figure out how to get involved in that area. Conducting or participating in a fundraiser like this is the perfect opportunity to get your name out there, attract customers to your establishment and create some positive buzz for your business.
