Whole Foods helps PARTY

Whole Foods Market in Roseville is helping PARTY programs keep the roads safer for walkers, runners, cyclers, drivers and passengers by choosing the group as a recipient of its Nickels for Nonprofits donations through Jan. 20. Customers can contribute by donating the nickel given for each reusable bag used now through January to the program. PARTY programs teach high school freshmen and sophomores about the potentially fatal, life-changing and jail time risks of driving while distracted by cell phone use or under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Whole Foods is located at 1001 Galleria Blvd. in Roseville. For more information on PARTY, visit www.partyprogramca.com.
