From April 1-June 30, Valley Natural Foods and many wellness products vendors rallied together on behalf of store wellness manager, Naomi Lundberg to put together the “Unite for Naomi” fundraiser. $5.00 bags of wellness products were sold to raise money on behalf of Naomi, who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year. All the wellness products were donated to 360 Communities’ Burnsville’s food shelf.
We are happy to report that we sold 426 bags and raised $2,519.16 for Naomi! That means for the 90-day period of the fundraiser we sold an average of almost 5 bags a day! That’s incredible! A huge thanks goes out to all of our shoppers for their generosity, it really means a lot. Also, another huge thanks goes out to all of our amazing wellness vendors who supported the fundraiser with product. We couldn’t have done this without you!
Naomi is managing it well and is an inspiration to all with her positive attitude and outlook on life. She is still able to come to work and has a smile on her face whenever you pass her by. She is truly a survivor and is extremely grateful to all who are supporting her.
