UBCF Chosen by Stop & Shop’s Community Bag Program

August 25, 2021

Reduce single-use plastic in the environment and give back to those in need, all while running routine errands at the local Stop & Shop! As part of the ongoing Community Bag Program, every month, a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of reusable Community Bags at Stop & Shop. 

UBCF has been selected as the benefitting non-profit for the month of September, and shoppers can easily give back by purchasing a reusable bag during their regular shopping routine. For every purchase of a $2.50 reusable Community Bag from Stop & Shop store located at 454 Fort Salonga Road, Northport N.Y., the United Breast Cancer Foundation will receive a $1 donation! 

These donations will go towards United Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission to help breast cancer patients, survivors, and their families. Even during these difficult times, UBCF has continued to provide relief to those in need through their various programs such as the new Covid Grant Program!

“It’s more important than ever to help reduce single-use plastic in the environment,” said Stephannie Mastrioanni, Executive Director of United Breast Cancer Foundation. “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’ll support us in September by purchasing one – or two! – Community Bags at our local Stop & Shop”
