Camden, Maine – This year, local community non-profits are more in need of support than in any other time in the recent years’ past. Now shoppers can give back to the local community and help to reduce single-use plastics by purchasing a special reusable bag at Hannaford. Knox County Meals on Wheels has been selected by local Hannaford store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Hannaford Fight Hunger Bag Program for the month of June!
The Hannaford Fight Hunger Bag Program is designed to give back to the local community with every reusable bag purchased. Every $2.50 reusable Fight Hunger Bag sold supports a non-profit local to the store in which it was purchased. This program offers a way for shoppers to give back as part of the regular weekly routine.
Every month, at every Hannaford location a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of these special reusable Fight Hunger Bags. Knox County Meals on Wheels was selected as the June beneficiary by local store leadership at the store located in Camden, Maine. Meals on Wheels will receive a $1 donation for every $2.50 reusable Fight Hunger Bag purchased at this location in June.
“This year has brought so many changes and difficulties for non-profits at the hyper-local level,” said Elisabeth Schuh, Executive Director of MCH, Inc. “We are thrilled to be participating in this innovative program that makes it possible for shoppers to give back to local non-profits while reducing single-use plastic in the environment. We appreciate the community support in this important initiative to make a difference.”
