Audubon Celebrates Selection as a Stop & Shop Community Bag Program Beneficiary 

Audubon Society of Rhode Island has been selected as a beneficiary of the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program for the month of August!

The Stop & Shop Community Bag Program, which launched in May 2019, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.

Educational nature programs spark wonder and enthusiasm

Audubon was selected as the August beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Stop & Shop located at 446 Putnam Pike in Greenville, RI. Audubon will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during August, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.

All donations collected through the Community Bag Program will be used towards our mission of connecting people with nature through education, conservation and advocacy of our natural environment.
