BROC, Hannaford launch tote-bag fundraiser

RUTLAND—BROC-Community Action in Southwestern Vermont, a nonprofit committed to ending poverty and helping low-income people move forward toward self-sufficiency, has been selected as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program for March.
This program has been designed to support local nonprofits like BROC-Community Action.
For every blue Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag with the “Good Karma” message purchased at the Rutland Hannaford supermarket, BROC-Community Action will receive a $1 donation to help it feed hungry families.
“We are very excited to have been chosen for this fundraising opportunity. The proceeds will help us stock our emergency community food shelf,” said BROC-Community Action Chief Executive Officer Tom Donahue.
BROC-Community Action has a goal of raising $250 during March, which is equivalent to 250 bags bought in support of BROC-Community Action.
