Pam Fischette, Marketing Team Leader at Whole Foods Mt Pleasant, presents a $6,000 check to AFFA Exec. Dir. Warren Redman-Gress as part of the store’s “5% Days.” Whole Foods Market created 5% Days to give back to the local community by providing support to nonprofit organizations whose programs directly benefit the communities in the greater Charleston area. On Tuesday, January 10th, Whole Foods Market in Mt. Pleasant donated 5% of its sales to Alliance For Full Acceptance (AFFA), South Carolina’s education and advocacy organization working for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) population in the state.
