The team members at Whole Foods Market are part of our community and they are passionate about supporting the local causes that are important to their shoppers and neighbors. Each store donates food to area food banks and shelters. Then several times a year, their stores also hold community giving days (otherwise known as “5% Days”) where five percent of that day’s net sales are donated to one chosen local nonprofit or educational organization.

The Golden Goose Thrift Shop is now accepting and picking up clothing donations and would like to share what happens to those donations.
