Four Whole Foods Markets in Orange County plan to donate 5 percent of their net sales on Wednesday, March 8 to benefit Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California and Children’s Book Week, an annual celebration of children’s books and reading.
Whole Foods’ Brea, Irvine, Huntington Beach and Tustin locations are all said to be participating in Community Support Day. Customers at these stores can also directly donate a new children’s book for local elementary students.
