A grocery store in Mahoning Township is helping the environment and local non-profits at the same time.
Giant Food Stores launched the "Bags 4 My Cause program" last month. For each of these reusable grocery bags purchased, $1 will be donated to a non-profit of the customers choice by using the "giving tag" attached to the bag by going online and directing the donation to one of over 3,500 non-profits. If the customer doesn't pick a non profit the Lehighton Giant with in 7 days of purchase, will designate an organization to receive the donations. Each bag costs $2.50.
Donations made through out March will benefit the Trinity Pantry.
For the month of April, the Pennsylvania Outdoor Veterans will be the recipients of the donations.
