The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program has selected the Mohawk Valley Health System as its beneficiary for the month of March. The program launched in October 2015 and is designed to support local non-profits through the sale of the reusable community bags. 

For every reusable community bag purchased in March at the Hannaford located on 4593 Commercial Drive, New Hartford, MVHS will receive a $1 donation. The store manager can provide assistance locating the reusable bag rack if needed. 

“We are very excited to be selected by the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program as its March beneficiary,” said Andrea MacDiarmid, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals coordinator. “The funds raised will benefit Maternal Child Services at MVHS and help make a difference to the children and families that we care for.”
