WINGS for Kids, an education program that teaches kids how to behave well, make good decisions and build healthy relationships is on-tap to be the recipient of Whole Foods Market’s 5-Percent Day. The Whole Foods Market Community Giving program is dedicated to local nonprofits with limited budgets trying to make a difference in the community. On Tuesday, June 24, 5 percent of the net sales at the Mount Pleasant Whole Foods Market will be donated to WINGS.
“We are so honored to be chosen as the recipient of Whole Foods Market’s 5-Percent Day. We strive to teach at-risk kids the skills that will help them succeed and flourish,” said Eleanor Smythe, South Carolina executive director. “Partnering with Whole Foods allows us to spread the message that social and emotional skills matter.”
“Our store is intimately tied to the community in which we serve and we believe in supporting organizations that allow people to be the best they can,” said Pam Fischette, marketing director for Whole Foods. “We are pleased to help WINGS continue to spread awareness for social and emotional learning.”
