CLINTON — Kirkland Art Center, a nonprofit committed to educating and advocating for the arts, has been selected as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program for January.

The program has been designed to create revenue streams for deserving local nonprofits like Kirkland Art Center.

For every blue Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag purchased at the 55 Meadow St. Hannaford, Kirkland Art Center will receive a $1 donation in order to help fulfill its mission. 

The Mission of the Kirkland Art Center is to educate children and adults, to advocate for artists and the arts, and to engage the community in a range of cultural experiences and opportunities. 

The bags retail for $2.29, the company said.
