HCRS Chosen for Shaw’s Reusable Bag Program in May

HCRS has been selected as a beneficiary of the Shaw’s GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Reusable Bag Program for the month of May.

The Shaw’s GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Reusable Bag Program, which launched in April 2019, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities shoppers live and work in. The program features the reusable GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Bag with a special tag attached to it that allows customers to direct a donation to a non-profit of their choice upon purchase.

HCRS was selected as the May beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Shaw’s located in Springfield. HCRS will receive a $1 donation every time the reusable GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Bag is purchased at this location during May, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.

“We are very pleased to have been chosen for this program,” said George Karabakakis, Ph.D., HCRS Chief Executive Officer. “This funding will help us in our mission of providing responsive, collaborative, and compassionate health care services for our community.”
