Santa Barbara, CA—Throughout the month of December, Fresh Thyme customers will have the opportunity to round up their total purchase to the nearest dollar to benefit Vitamin Angels, according to a press release. Fresh Thyme and Vitamin Angels have been partners for over four years, and to date they have reached over 2.6 million at-risk mothers and kids.
