Whole Foods to donate 5% of Aug. 30 sales to cancer aid

The Whole Foods Market in Sandy Springs has selected the Georgia Cancer Foundation (GFC) as the recipient of their “5% Day” on Aug. 30.

Four times a year, Whole Foods contributes 5% of one day’s sales to a deserving non-profit organization.

So on Thursday, Aug. 30, the Sandy Springs Whole Foods, 5930 Roswell Road, will be contributing 5% of that day’s sales of organic goods to fight cancer.

Rudy Morgan, Executive Director of GCF, said he is thrilled with the newly formed partnership.

“Many organizations apply for this program, but obviously only a few can benefit,” said Morgan. “We are grateful to Whole Foods for stepping up and getting involved in Georgia’s effort to curb and eradicate cancer.”

Georgia Cancer Foundation, which is based in Atlanta, provides education, early detection, and support for Georgia residents affected by all types of cancer.
