Whole Foods Markets in Broward to Donate Five Percent of Net Sales to YMCA of Broward County Today

If you find your cupboard bare today, might we suggest restocking at Whole Foods?

Today, August 14, three Whole Foods Markets in south Florida will donate five percent of their net day sales to the YMCA of Broward County.

The grocery chain that specializes in local, organic, and clean foods, is donating the money as part of the company's Five Percent Days, in which Whole Foods Markets donate a portion of their sales to a local community organization several times a year.

The three Whole Foods Markets participating in Five Percent Days Wednesday include the Fort Lauderdale (2000 North Federal Highway); Pembroke Pines (14956 Pines Boulevard); and Plantation (7720 Peters Road) locations.

It's a good time to stock up on those canned goods and pantry items, while helping the YMCA of Broward continue to provide services and programs to families, kids, and teens.
