Whole Foods is also the presenting sponsor for the museum's sold-out Oyster Roast Nov. 14.

The store, at 12080 Jefferson Ave., is open 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Museum staff and volunteers will be on site bagging groceries throughout the day.

The funds will be used to support educational programming and animal care at the Newport News museum, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
