Cornell Cooperative Extension, 4-H program to benefit from Hannaford programs

Posted

ORISKANY — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County and Oneida County 4-H have been selected as the July beneficiaries for two Hannaford Programs by local store leadership.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County has been selected as the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program beneficiary at its store at 4593 Commercial Drive in New Hartford.

The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, which launched in April 2014, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support intending to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work. CCEOC will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable community bag is purchased during July.

Shoppers also have the opportunity to purchase a reusable community bag online via Hannaford-To-Go to support the organization of the month.

Oneida County 4-H, a program of Cornell Cooperative Extension Oneida County, has
been selected as the Hannaford Bloomin’ 4 Good Program beneficiary by the Hannaford store at 808 W. Chestnut St. in Rome.

The Hannaford Bloomin’ 4 Good Program, launched in August 2021, allows shoppers to give back as every Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker sold supports a non-profit local to the Hannaford in which it was purchased.

“The Oneida County 4-H program staff are thrilled to be selected as the July beneficiary
of Hannaford’s Bloomin’ 4 Good Program,” said Lisa Farney, 4-H youth development educator.

“We could not provide the educational opportunities we do without local
community support. Participation in 4-H programming has long-reaching effects, with 4-
H’ers being four times more likely to contribute to their communities and twice as likely to make healthier lifestyle choices. The donations to Oneida County 4-H help today’s youth
become the leaders of tomorrow.”
