Historic Newton is honored to be selected by the Whole Foods Market stores in Newton as the beneficiary of their 5% Days program. Four times each year, Whole Foods Market’s Newton stores donate 5% of the day’s net sales to a selected local charity, and on Tuesday, March 1 Historic Newton will be the featured non-profit organization. Both locations of Whole Foods Market in Newton, 647 Washington Street and 916 Walnut Street, participate in the program during store hours, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Historic Newton will staff an information table inside each store from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4 to 8 p.m.
“Whole Foods Market is dedicated to serving its local community. We are honored to give back through programs like our community giving days, like a 5% Day. Through these programs we are able to serve local non-profits and organizations like Historic Newton,” said a Whole Foods Market representative.
Historic Newton will allocate funds received from the 5% Days to fund its work of inspiring discovery and engagement in our community’s stories as part of American history. Historic Newton’s programs include museum exhibits, lectures, family festivals, concerts, and walking tours.
