DURING A RECENT â€ś5% Dayâ€ť promotion, two Whole Foods stores in Providence and one in Cranston each gave 5 percent of the dayâ€™s net sales to Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation, donating a total of $12,104.34.
A recent in-store promotion allowed three area Whole Foods Market stores to give more than $12,000 to the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation.
During â€ś5% Day,â€ť two Whole Foods stores located in Providence and one in Cranston each gave 5 percent of the dayâ€™s net sales to the foundation.
The donation, which totaled $12,104.34, was accepted at the Waterman Street location in Providence by Maria Gemma, executive director, and Gary Calvino, director of development.
â€śThe foundation is absolutely delighted to have partners like Whole Foods Market that understand our mission,â€ť Gemma said. â€śToo many national chains will only support national organizations, especially during promotions related to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.â€ť
Bonnie Combs, marketing team leader at Whole Foodsâ€™ University Heights location, agreed.
â€śWe proudly support nonprofits in our community,â€ť she said. â€śThe results of this three-store 5% Day prove that our customers generously shopped to support the mission of the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation.â€ť â€˘
