Catholic Charities, Providing Help & Creating Hope in New London, Middlesex, Windham & Tolland counties, has been selected as a beneficiary of the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program. 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. Catholic Charities, Diocese of Norwich was selected as a beneficiary of the program by store leadership. Catholic Charities, Diocese of Norwich will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased designating them as the beneficiary.
“As more and more grocers and Connecticut retailers begin to phase out single use plastic bags, reusable bags will become a necessity for everyone. Being able to purchase a reusable bag and help a non-profit like Catholic Charities is a win-win. Every dollar makes a difference for an agency like ours and every dollar counts! I hope that Stop and Shop customers will consider Catholic Charities as their beneficiary”, said Edward J. Tessman, Executive Director of Catholic Charities, Diocese of Norwich. Catholic Charities is a non-profit based in Eastern Connecticut. Founded in 1921, Catholic Charities has Provided Help & Created Hope to those of all faiths who are most in need throughout Eastern CT. Learn more about Catholic Charities by visiting www.ccfsn.org.
