Whole Foods Event Raises Awareness and Support for OPSF

Whole Foods in Destin has chosen the Okaloosa Public Schools Foundation (OPSF) to be the recipient of the Dimes for Donation program.  If a customer brings in recyclable bags, they either get a dime credit, or they can donate the dime to charity. 

To kick off this promotion, Whole Foods held a back to school event on Saturday, August 20th. The event raised $600 and featured raffle items, arts and crafts, face painting, and more.  All proceeds from the event will go to the Foundation.
