Local Whole Foods raises funds for schools
School has started in Philadelphia, but funding is still an issue.
Now, a local grocery store has decided to help.
The Whole Foods Market on South Street will be donating 5 percent of net sales made today, September 18, to two local public schools, William M. Meredith Elementary School and General George A. McCall Elementary & Middle School.
The market says that all funds raised will directly support 1,300 students and the student-focused initiatives. The McCall School is hoping to raise enough money to buy Chromebooks for the 6th graders, while the Meredith School is planning on purchasing scholastic magazines, new math books and an additional day per week with an on-site nurse.
