The Fresh Air Fund to benefit from Hannaford’s reusable bags program

The Fresh Air Fund has been selected to be a part of  Hannaford Supermarket’s reusable bag program, designed to support local not-for-profit organizations.

The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. For more information about hosting a Fresh Air child, go online to t www.freshair.org.

The bags will be on sale locally at Voorheesville Hannaford store in September. The blue reusable bags with a “good karma” message are located on the reusable bag rack and at various registers. For every blue bag sold, $1 is donated to the Fresh Air Fund.
