Newport News, Va. – Newport News Police Assistant Chief M. Grinstead volunteered at Whole Foods Saturday to promote “5% Day.”

To donate, shop at the Whole Foods Market in Tech Center on Wednesday, February 24. Whole Foods will donate 5 percent of their net sales to the Newport News Public Library system and the Mayor’s Book Club.

The Hampton-Newport News Mayors’ Book Club was created in 2008 by Hampton Mayor Holly Ward.

Newport News Mayor McKinley Price joined Mayor Ward in October 2011 to create a joint Hampton-Newport News Mayors’ Book Club.

The book club serves 7,000 students in 350 classrooms. Over 3,000 copies of the Book-of-the-Month are distributed.
