A big thank you to Whole Foods Arden and everyone who participated in our 5% day on September 17th. Thanks to you, we raised $3,866.50 that will help us carry out our community projects.
Whole Foods Market Arden (4315 Arden Way, Sacramento 95864) is donating 5% of net sales on September 17th to Alchemist Community Development Corp.
5% Days are one meaningful way in which Whole Foods Market gives back to the local community. On designated days throughout the year, 5% of the day’s total net sales are donated to a local nonprofit organization. This month Whole Foods Market Arden is proud to support Alchemist CDC as their recipient.
