Access Celebrates Selection as a Stop & Shop Community Bag Program Beneficiary
Willimantic, CT – Access Community Action Agency has been selected as a beneficiary of the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program for the month of September.
The Stop & Shop Community Bag Program, which launched in May 2019, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.
Access was selected as the September beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Stop & Shop located at 1391 Main Street, Willimantic, CT. Access will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during September, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.
“We are grateful recipients,” said Kathleen Krider, Access Senior Director of Community Engagement and Human Resources. “The Community Bag Program will help us continue our mission to provide under-resourced individuals, families, and communities with access to opportunities that empower them to achieve and sustain economic stability.”
The Access Community Action Agency is designated by the federal and state government as the anti-poverty agency in northeast Connecticut. Access provides food, affordable housing, job readiness services, and other pathways to economic self-reliance for vulnerable limited-income families and individuals throughout the region.
