December Shopping is for the Birds

Please make your purchasing dollars count this month and consider shopping at New Morning Market in Woodbury—10% of all profits in December will be donated to the Audubon Center Bent of the River.

Since New Morning’s inaugural “December Shopping is for the Birds” event in December 2015, the store has raised over $10,000 in support of Bent of the River’s mission to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.

Your purchases can make a real difference!
