As a company, we are quite unique. Our stores are not cookie cutter big box-type stores with directives from “corporate” about how to run the business. Each of our stores has a lot of latitude in deciding the best way to operate that individual store to meet the needs of the local community. That makes community giving really special and fun.
Our team members are part of the local community and they are passionate about supporting the local causes that are important to our shoppers and neighbors. First off, it’s a given that each store donates food to area food banks and shelters. We have food; they know how to get it to people who need it. Done. Then several times a year, our stores hold community giving days (otherwise known as “5% Days”) where five percent of that day’s net sales are donated to a local nonprofit or educational organization. The groups that benefit from these 5% Days are as varied as the communities themselves. To be considered for a 5% Day, please access our online application here.
If you have questions, please contact Camille Lamb, our store’s Healthy Eating & Green Mission Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org. Below you’ll find the donation request form for the Coral Gables location. Due to the high volume of requests, we require 6 weeks prior to the event for applications to be considered. Our budget for donations is currently full through the month of February 2014. We will resume considering donation requests beginning in March.
