Bags that Give Back, Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley Selected to Benefit from Big Y Community Bag Program

May 12, 2023

The Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley (the Club) has been selected by Big Y in Shelton as the benefitting non-profit in May’s Community Bag Program. The 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 $2.50 reusable Community Bag sends a $1 donation to the Club. These special bags are marked and marketed separately from the store’s own reusable shopping bags, so if you don’t see the specially marked Community Bag, be sure to ask your cashier if you’d like to purchase one. Bags can be purchased through the month of May.

“It’s a simple and convenient way to support our boys and girls right in the check-out line,” says Shaye Roscoe, Chief Executive Officer of the Club. “No amount is ever too small to make a difference, and the power of our community chipping in one dollar at a time can make a big impact for these kids.”

For more than 65 years, the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley has provided a positive environment for children and teens throughout the Valley.
