PUTNAM — The Putnam II Leo Club has been selected by local Stop & Shop store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Stop & Shop Community Bag for the month of April.
Every month every Stop & Shop location picks a local non-profit to benefit from the sale of the reusable Community Bag. The Putnam II Leo Club was selected as the April beneficiary by the Stop & Shop store on Providence Pike (Rt. 44).
The Putnam II Leo Club will receive a $1 donation for every $2.50 reusable Community Bag purchased at this location in April. All proceeds will be given back to local charities.
“It’s more important than ever to help reduce single-use plastic in the environment and give back to those in need,” said Connor Vassar, president of the Putnam II Leo Club, “Non-profits at the local level, like us, are in need of community support. This program offers the perfect solution to multiple issues of the world today. We hope you will support us in April by purchasing one – or two! – Community Bags at our local Stop and Shop!”
The Putnam II Leo Club is a non-profit youth community service club sponsored by the Lions Club International and the Putnam Lions Club. The club has students from neighboring communities and from several grade levels, most of whom are 12-18 years of age. For more info:
