Whole Foods Markets at 8688 E. Raintree Drive in Scottsdale and at 7111 East Mayo Boulevard are helping shoppers feel a little pride in their purchases with their Community Support Day Wednesday, March 13.


On this day, the participating stores will donate five percent of all sales to Arizona Musicfest to help support the group’s important work, improving youth and community access to quality classical music through music appreciation programs and live performances.


As part of its commitment to supporting local causes in the communities in which it works, Whole Foods Market stores nationwide hold Community Support Days three times a year and donate five percent of that day’s net sales to a local non-profit or educational organization.


Arizona Musicfest is a volunteer-based organization in Carefree that began 22 years ago to bring the joy of great music to everyone in the community. The non-profit organizes a yearly music festival and is committed to bringing quality music to the classrooms of more than 9,000 elementary school children. In addition, Arizona Musicfest provides scholarships to outstanding classical music students seeking careers in music performance.
