Bags That Give Back: St. Peter’s Haven in Clifton Selected to Benefit from the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program
Reduce single-use plastic in the environment and give back to those in need in the local community, while running your weekly errands. St. Peter’s Haven has been selected as the March beneficiary by local store leadership at the Stop and Shop located at 1189 Broad Street, Clifton. St. Peter’s Haven will receive a $1 donation for every $2.50 reusable Community Bag purchased at this location in March.
The Stop & Shop 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 month at every Stop & Shop location a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of the reusable Community Bag. “It’s more important than ever to help reduce single-use plastic in the environment,” said Pam Fueshko, Acting Executive Director of St. Peter’s Haven. “Non-profits at the local level, like us, are in need of community support. This program offers the perfect solution to multiple issues of the world today. We hope you’ll support us in March by purchasing one – or two! –Community Bags at our local Stop and Shop!”
New Jersey’s plastic bag ban will go into effect May 4th - why not stock up now in the month of March and help feed and house those in need in the Clifton community!
