For the entire month of December, store leadership at Hannaford’s 1122 Mohawk Street, Utica NY location has selected Center of Family Life & Recovery to receive a $1 donation from every purchase of the $2.50 Hannaford Community Bag.

The Community Bag Program facilitates community support with the goal of making a difference in the vicinities where shoppers live and work. More than $1.2 million has been donated to over 5,000 local nonprofits since the Program launched in October 2015.

“We are thrilled to be selected as the beneficiary of the Community Bag Program,” said Cassandra Sheets, CEO of Center for Family Life and Recovery. “Community programs such as this help us to offer community events and resources to those in recovery, creating a community and opportunities to engage with others that have been on the same journey. They also help reduce the stigma around recovery and offer hope.”
