Columbia County Historical Society Chosen for Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program

The Columbia County Historical Society (CCHS), has been selected as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program for the month of July, at its Valatie location — 2967 Route 9.

The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program launched in October 2015, and is designed to support local nonprofits through the sale of reusable Community Bags. CCHS was selected by Hannaford as the July beneficiary of the program, and for every reusable Community Bag purchased at the Valatie Hannaford during July, CCHS will receive a $1 donation.

“We are thrilled to be chosen as July’s benefactor for the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program,” said CCHS Executive Director, Lori Yarotsky. “Our mission is to preserve and present the history, heritage and culture of Columbia County, and serve the whole county, so it means a lot to be recognized by our local Hannaford Supermarket, especially this summer while there are a lot of exciting–and some new–exhibitions at all four CCHS-owned properties.”
