Shop or dine at either Evanston Whole Foods Market on Tuesday and 5 percent of net sales will benefit the Evanston Community Foundation’s Communityworks Initiative that seeks to have every child ready for kindergarten and  every youth ready for work.

The every child initiative supports vulnerable families with very young children, helping prepare the children for later school success. Among other services, the program helps local agencies provide mental health consultation to home visitors who assist families troubled by mental illness or violence and provides scholarships to high-quality preschool for 3- and 4-year-olds from low-income homes.
