Whole Foods Market(R) Sets Up Haitian Earthquake Relief Drive
Date:1/15/2010

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Whole Foods Market, a leader in natural and organic foods, announced today that its 289 stores in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom have set up an easy way for shoppers to make donations to help the people of Haiti who have been devastated by the recent earthquake.  Shoppers can give any amount at the checkouts to directly support several different relief organizations.

In addition, the company has created a special "Haitian Fund" to support Whole Foods Market Team Members who have been affected by the earthquake.

"We have many Team Members from Haiti, and together we are supporting them by taking these steps," said Walter Robb, co-president and chief operating officer at Whole Foods Market. "We're also setting up donation boxes in employee areas in stores, facilities and offices."

Whole Foods Market Team Members across different regions are taking the initiative to help in a number of ways, from collecting clothes and running food drives to putting on fundraising dinners in the stores. The company is also looking into other ways to help, including working with vendors to deliver additional food and water to the country, and researching whether it can help Team Member volunteers participate in relief efforts which are going to be needed for the months to come.

Through Jan. 31, shoppers can conveniently make donations at Whole Foods Market's registers. Shoppers can contribute $1, $2, $5, $10, or any designated amount to each store's selected non-profit
