Three times a year, individual Whole Foods stores hold 5% Community Support Days, donating 5% of that day’s sales to a local or regional non-profit or educational organization.
The next Roosevelt Square Whole Foods Market 5% Community Support Day is Tuesday, April 5, 2011. Five percent of all proceeds from the store’s sales that day will go to SPT. “So, if you can,” Keith Dahlgren said, ”hold off buying groceries that week until then!”
SPT will have an information table set up in the store from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the 5% Day. ”Volunteers will answer questions, hand out information on the Mainstage and Youth Drama Program, and have a sign up sheet for people to join our email list,” Sheryl Stich, Development Manager at Seattle Public Theater says. And, at noon on the Saturday before the 5% Day (Saturday, April 2, 2011), SPT will host an activity in the store to entertain shoppers.
The Seattle Public Theater and the Roosevelt Square Whole Foods Market are both My Green Lake advertisers.
