Funds To Support Programs and Services for South Florida’s Senior Community.
- Fort Lauderdale, FL (1888PressRelease) May 27, 2022 – Reduce single-use plastic in the environment and give back to those in need in the local community, all while running routine weekly errands at the local Fresco y Mas. Meals on Wheels South Florida has been selected by local Fresco y Mas store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Community Bag Program for the month of June.
The Fresco y Mas Community Bag Program is an easy way for shoppers to give back to the local community and the environment as part of the regular shopping routine. Every $2.99 reusable Community Bag sends a $1 donation to a non-profit local to the Fresco y Mas in which it was purchased.
As part of this ongoing program, every month at every Fresco y Mas location a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of the reusable Community Bag. Meals on Wheels South Florida was selected as the June beneficiary by local store leadership at the Fresco y Más located at 1531 Northwest 40th Avenue, Lauderhill. Meals on Wheels South Florida will receive a $1 donation for every $2.99 reusable Community Bag purchased at this location in June.
Its more important than ever to help reduce single-use plastic in the environment, said Mark Adler, Executive Director of Meals on Wheels South Florida. We are thrilled to be participating in this innovative program that makes it possible for shoppers to give back to local non-profits while reducing single-use plastic in the environment. We appreciate the community support in this important initiative to make a difference.
