FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Bronx, New York) – The Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC), a non-profit committed to empowering Bronx residents from cradle to career to advance education and well-being for a vibrant community, has been selected as a beneficiary of the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program for the month of May.
The Stop & Shop Community Bag Program, which launched in April 2019, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities shoppers live and work in. The program features the reusable Community Bag with a special tag attached to it that allows customers to direct a donation to a non-profit of their choice upon purchase.
"KHCC is excited to be partnering with Stop and Shop to raise funds for Kingsbridge Heights families and to help reduce the number of plastic bags being used in our community," said KHCC's Executive Director, Margaret Della. "It takes a combined effort to ensure our community has the resources needed to thrive and maintain a safe environment for all."
The Kingsbridge Heights Community Center was selected as the May beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Stop & Shop located at 5716 Broadway in the Bronx. KHCC will receive a $1 donation every time the reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during May unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.
KHCC has a goal of raising $500 during May and plans to use the projected funds to continue support of over 4,500 Bronx youth and their families.
