Bags That Give Back: Barrier-Free Selected to Benefit in the Giant Food Community Bag Program Designed to Give
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WESTMINSTER, MD - Reduce single-use plastic in the environment and give back to those in need in the local community, all while running routine weekly errands at the local Giant Food. Barrier-Free has been selected by local Giant Food store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Community Bag Program for the month of January!
The Giant Food Community Bag Program is an easy way for shoppers to give back to the local community and the environment as part of the regular shopping routine. Every $2.50 reusable Community Bag sends a $1 donation to a non-profit local to the Giant Food in which it was purchased.
As part of this ongoing program, every month at every Giant Food location a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of the reusable Community Bag. Barrier-Free was selected as the January beneficiary by local store leadership at the store located at 405 N. Center St Westminster, MD 21157.
Barrier-Free will receive a $1 donation for every $2.50 reusable Community Bag purchased at this location in January.
Great news!! If you aren't local to Westminster, you can purchase a Community Bag at ANY Giant location and follow the easy 4-steps on the tag to have your donation directed to Barrier-Free.
