Whole Foods Market Charlotte will donate five percent of its net sales to the Carolina Thread Trail on Tuesday, Dec. 17!
Buy food for your holiday feasts, weekly groceries, snacks, or grab your lunch or dinner at the grocery store to support The Thread! WFM Charlotte is located on the corner of Sharon and Fairview roads in the South Park neighborhood of Charlotte next to Phillips Place at 6610 Fairview Rd., Charlotte, NC, 28210. The 5% Day is only being hosted at this Whole Foods Market location. While shopping on Dec. 17, stop by The Thread’s info table to receive an update on The Thread, find local trails and ask questions.
This give-back program is part of an ongoing community partnership between The Thread and WFM Charlotte. Earlier this year, The Thread supported and shared information at the store’s GreenTrek initiative that encourages healthy living and community engagement among employees. WFM Charlotte hosted a dog walk on Little Sugar Creek Greenway, a segment of The Thread, and store employees attended a park maintenance project hosted at Freedom Park in conjunction with The Thread and Mecklenburg County Parks and Recreation. Also, the market partnered with The Thread to provide free food the Fall Into The Thread event in October.
Whole Foods Market’s 43,000-square-foot Charlotte store serves its customers with a selection of natural and organic products, its Queen’s Corner Bar and Salud Cooking School, and through its family of more than 220 employees. Whole Foods Market stores give back to local communities throughout the year, and one such way is the quarterly 5% Day. In 2012, Whole Foods Market stores across the country raised more than $5 million from the 5% Days to support nonprofits in the local communities.
