Whole Foods Market 5% Day Raises Over $8,000 for Neighbors with Intellectual Disabilities
STAR, Inc., Lighting the Way recently received a check for $8,466.68 from Whole Foods Markets of Darien and Westport (combined) as a result of Whole Foods Market 5% Day held December 9, 2015 to benefit programs and services for Fairfield County neighbors who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. The local healthy markets pledged that five percent of every purchase on the designated 5% Day would go directly to support the programs and mission of STAR, Inc., Lighting the Way, a local non-profit organization that has served thousands of people in our community since 1952. Whole Foods Market created 5% Days to give back to their local communities by providing support to nonprofit organizations whose programs directly benefit the communities surrounding their stores. 5% Days are held quarterly in each store. On this special day, selected organizations receive 5% of a store’s total pretax sales for that day.
