Gilman Library has once again been selected by our Alton Hannaford store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Community Bag Program! You can give to the Gilman Library by picking up a $2.50 reusable Community Bag at the Alton Hannaford located at 80 Wolfeboro Hwy, during the entire month of September. We will receive a $1 donation for every bag sold during that time.
The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program makes it easy for shoppers to support their community and environment by buying durable, reusable shopping bags. A portion of each Community Bag purchase goes to a local non-profit, and for the entire month of September, the Gilman Library is a beneficiary of this wonderful program.
Holly Brown, Gilman Library Director, says “We are so pleased to once again be chosen as the beneficiary of this wonderful program. Thank you Hannaford and thank you to our community members, for your support.”
If you do pick one up, be sure to practice standard safety protocols. Just like you need to wash your hands regularly, always wash your reusable bags before and after use. If possible, bag your own groceries at check out when using a reusable bag. Thank you in advance for your support!
The purpose of this program is to support organizations that are important to individuals and families in communities local to stores where the bags are sold. To be considered for the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, organizations must meet all guidelines listed below. Store leadership has full discretion to determine which organizations will receive the funds.
