Grocery shopping is just something that we all have to do. So, why not do some good with your weekly errand? On June 24, you can feel good while shopping for those kale chips and organic apples at the Mt. Pleasant Whole Foods when 5 percent of the net sales will go to support local organization WINGS for Kids. WINGS is an after-school program that teaches at-risk elementary school children how to behave well, make good decisions, and build healthy relationships. Essentially it teaches kids how to not only succeed in their professional lives but their personal ones as well.

The process is easy. You really just have to shop like you would any other day, and WINGS for Kids receives money. Representatives from WINGS for Kids will be on-site to answer any questions or discuss the program from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. “It’s a great way to give back to our community. Our core values are intimately tied to the community that we serve, so to help the wings for kids program provides that opportunity to better our community,” Pam Fischette, Mt. Pleasant Whole Foods director of marketing says.
