It’s pretty simple. On 5% Day we donate 5% of that day’s sales to a local nonprofit organization. The event takes place on a Saturday four times a year.
How it works: Volunteers from a local nonprofit organization join Ellwood Thompson’s staff members on the selected 5% Day to bag groceries and talk to customers about their organization. The organization is welcome to set up an information table and encouraged to spread the word to friends and neighbors about the event. It’s a fantastic way to spread word about your organization and to earn fundraising dollars in a fun and friendly environment.

Notable beneficiaries of their generosity include their alma maters – UVA Darden School of Business and Mary Baldwin College – as well as VCU School of Engineering and the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. Through their leadership, the Goodwins hope to inspire and encourage gifts from others to further enhance our community.
