Susan Halpern gives thumbs up to Big Y Community Bag Program

JGS Lifecare is pleased to announce it has been selected as the non-profit beneficiary of the Big Y Community Bag Program for the month of March. The Big Y Community Bag Program, launched in January 2019, is a reusable bag program with the goal of making a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work. JGS Lifecare was selected as the March beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Big Y located in Longmeadow. JGS Lifecare will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable “Big Y Cares” Community Bag is purchased at this location during March, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.

“We are thrilled to receive the support of our local Big Y and our community through the Big Y Community Bag Program,” said Susan Kimball Halpern, vice president of Development and Communications at JGS Lifecare. “Every dollar donated will help us fulfill our mission of caring for our community’s seniors. I urge our supporters, our family members, our staff and the community to take advantage of this opportunity to stock up on your reusable grocery bags and know that you are supporting the programs and services that enrich the lives of the people we serve across the JGS Lifecare family of services.”
