Donate Your Dime
Did you know that Whole Foods Market gives 10 cents per bag to customers who re-use their own shopping bags for their purchased groceries? This program reduces our impact on the environment and now supports local non-profit groups. Customers have the choice to accept their cash refund, or donate the cash back to the store’s chosen non-profit organization or to the Whole Planet Foundation. One local non-profit is chosen each quarter to receive the Donate Your Dime option. To apply to be a Donate Your Dime recipient, please complete and submit a Donate Your Dime Application.
Our current Donate Your Dime recipient is Success 4 Kids and Families.
Our previous Donate Your Dime campaign raised over $2,500 for Lost Angels Animal Rescue.
