Give Back to the Gallery with Stop & Shop Community Bag Program for the Month of March 2022



Give Back in Springfield: Stop & Shop Community Bag Program Aims to Eliminate Single-Use Plastics While Donating to Local Non-Profits

(Springfield, MA) – This year, local community non-profits are more in need of support than in any other time in the recent years’ past. Now shoppers can give back to the local community and help to reduce single-use plastics by purchasing a special reusable bag at Stop & Shop. Art for the Soul Gallery has been selected by local Stop & Shop store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program for the month of March!

The Stop & Shop Community Bag Program is designed to give back to the local community with every reusable bag purchased. Every $2.50 reusable Community Bag sold supports a non-profit local to the store in which it was purchased. This program offers a way for shoppers to give back as part of the regular weekly routine.


Every month, at every Stop & Shop location a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of these special reusable Community Bags. Art for the Soul was selected as the March beneficiary by local store leadership at the store located at 1277 Liberty Street, in the Springfield Plaza. Art for the Soul will receive a $1 donation for every $2.50 reusable Community Bag purchased at this location in March.


“This year has brought so many changes and difficulties for small non-profits,” said Rosemary Tracy Woods, Executive Director of Art for the Soul. “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.”
