Whole Foods Donating Portion of Sales to Paine College

Whole Foods Market in Augusta has announced it will donate 5% of its net sales on Thursday, July 28, to Paine College.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission has recommended Paine lose its accreditation over failure to meet several requirements related to finances.  Paine is appealing the decision.

Donations from the public and private sector have helped Paine get out of debt, but school officials say they still need money in the bank to prove they are in compliance financially.

Whole Foods is lending its support by donating a portion of its net sales all day Thursday, July 28th, to Paine.  The store is open 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. in Washington Crossing on Washington Road.
