If you refuse to shop at Whole Foods but want to support the good work of our local Church World Service outpost, you can give here.
Sometimes it's easy to shop your conscience. I wouldn't want Papa John's pizza no matter what the boss's stance on healthcare.
Sometimes things are a little more complicated. I was in a hurry earlier this week and ended up grabbing a bite at the Friendly Center Chick-fil-A. Saw my friend, was happy to support him and the place that has done right by him. I have problems with Target, and also find myself in the Lawndale store on a semi-regular basis. And so on.
Whole Foods does some good things, even if Mackey is a tool. I find the stores a little precious. The one in GSO is less convenient to my home than Fresh Market -- a local company -- or Earth Fare, also based in NC. So I don't shop much at Whole Foods, unless I do.
Word is that the proceeds from yesterday's promotion brought in enough dough for CWS to provide some household essentials for 50 families. FWIW, I purchased some gift cards and donated those to CWS for the use of their clients. I also got a small container of fruit salad for myself. It was quite good.
