Vermont Business Magazine Lamoille Housing Partnership (LHP) has been chosen as the upcoming beneficiary organization of Hannaford Supermarket’s Cause Bag program. Throughout the month of January, $1 from each Hannaford Helps reusable bag purchase will be donated to Lamoille Housing Partnership.
“Hannaford is demonstrating a commitment to the community and challenging us as shoppers to collaborate with them to build awareness to important causes like the lack of affordable housing in our area. We're happy to be included in this wonderful program!” says Lamoille Housing Partnership Executive Director Jim Lovinsky.
Created in 2014, the Cause Bag program demonstrates Hannaford’s commitment to support local nonprofits while reducing waste. To date, Hannaford Helps Bag sales have allocated over $387,000 towards locally based nonprofits and saved over two million single use bags.
Lovinsky continues, “all of the money we raise at Lamoille Housing Partnership goes to increasing or helping improve affordable housing in Lamoille Valley, whether finding homes for working families, seniors or those with no place to call home.”
The durable, reusable Hannaford Helps bag cost $2.50 each. $1 from each bag’s sale will automatically be donated to Lamoille Housing Partnership by Hannaford. The Hannaford Helps bags can be purchased at the Hannaford Supermarket at the Fairground Plaza in Morrisville.
