Had a friend send me this press release. Please try to do your grocery shopping at Whole Foods at 929 South Street on Wednesday, September 14.
On Wednesday September 14th, Whole Foods South Street will donate 5% of its proceeds to Ready, Willing & Able! Ready, Willing & Able is a residential work training program for formerly homeless men. Our innovative work program offers homeless men the opportunity to break the cycles of homelessness, drug dependency, and incarceration through paid work experience and case management services.
Each ready, willing and able trainee is given a bright blue uniform and is assigned to a Community Improvement Project crew. The “men in blue” provide street cleaning, landscaping and custodial services to neighborhoods in North, West, and South Philadelphia.
