Buy a Bag in August to Benefit the Food Pantry

We are excited to announce that the Newmarket Community Church Food Pantry has been selected as a beneficiary of the Shaw’s GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Program for the month of August.

The Shaw’s GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Program, which launched in April 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.

The Newmarket Community Church Food Pantry was selected as the August beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Shaw’s located in Stratham, NH. The Newmarket Community Church Food Pantry will receive a $1 donation every time the $3.00 reusable GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Bag is purchased at this location during August, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.

The Newmarket Community Church Food Pantry is extremely grateful to Shaws in Stratham for all the support they have provided over the years. They are an EXCELLENT community partner and amazingly generous.

This Give Back Where It Counts Program will give a much-needed financial boost to the Pantry during this time of need. During the past six months Pantry attendance has increased by over 37%. Last week alone, we served over 70 families which equates to approximately 140 individuals. The donation from the GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Program will increase our ability to serve all these individuals. Thank you for your kind support of this mission!
