BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Our Place Drop-in Center has been selected as a beneficiary of the Shaw’s “Give Back Where It Counts” reusable bag program for the month of April. For each of the reusable shopping bags purchased at the Walpole, N.H. store, Our Place will receive one dollar.
The Shaw’s program was launched in April 2019 to facilitate community support, with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work. The program features the reusable “Give Back Where It Counts” bag with a special tag attached that allows customers to direct a donation to the nonprofit of their choice upon purchase.
Our Place was selected as the first beneficiary of the program by store leadership at Shaw’s in Walpole. The food shelf and daytime shelter will receive the donation every time the reusable bag is purchased at this location during April, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.
“We are grateful to Shaw’s for selecting us for this program and for our ongoing partnership with them in providing food for those who struggle to feed their families,” said Lisa Pitcher, Our Place executive director. “The reusable bags also fit in with our efforts to model sustainability.”
