LRCS Selected as Hannaford Reusable Bag Program Beneficiary

Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS) has been selected as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program for the month of December.

The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, which launched in April 2014, facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in local communities. The program makes it easy for shoppers to support non-profits within the area through the purchase of a reusable shopping bag. A portion of the proceeds is donated to the monthly beneficiary.

LRCS was selected by store leadership at the Hannaford located at 1425 Lake Shore Rd. in Gilford to receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during December.

“As a community-based organization, we are especially grateful for the support we receive from local businesses that help us to carry out our mission, commented Becky Bryant, LRCS President and CEO. “We very much appreciate the generosity of Hannaford Supermarket in supporting the families and individuals we serve through the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program.”

The money collected from the December Community Bag Program will go directly to LRCS, a family-centered social service agency that provides a broad range of programs and services designed to support and empower individuals and families throughout their life cycle, strengthening their role and capacity to contribute to a healthy and vibrant community and to live a productive, independent, dignified life. LRCS is one of the state’s ten area agencies that provide comprehensive services to people with developmental disabilities and acquired brain disorders, enabling them to be active and fully participating citizens in their communities.

The Community Bags are located on displays around the store and at the checkout. For more information on the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, visit hannaford.bags4mycause.com.
