GMUW and Hannaford’s Partner in Reusable Bag Program


Barre, VT – Green Mountain United Way (GMUW), a local nonprofit committed to providing services to its neighbors through Education, Income, Health and Basic Needs, has been selected as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program for the month of February.

This exciting program has been designed to support local nonprofits like GMUW. For every blue Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag with the good karma messaging purchased at the South Barre Hannaford, Green Mountain United Way will receive a $1 donation in order to help fulfill its mission of mobilizing communities to create lasting changes that will improve lives.

“The Hannaford Reusable Bag program is a great way for shoppers to assist their local United Way and, ultimately, their neighbors in need,” said GMUW Executive Director, Tawnya Kristen. “It not only provides funding for GMUW but also helps our area environmentally by taking millions of plastic bags from being thrown into our landfills.”

GMUW will be using the projected funds for its latest Tatum’s Totes project, which provides backpacks filled with personal items for children and youth going into foster care. For information about this project, go to
