ACME is helping the Food Bank of South Jersey! During October, the Food Bank of South Jersey will receive a $1 donation for every $3.00 GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Bag sold at the ACME stores located at 100 East Black Horse Pike, Audubon, NJ, and 400 West Cuthbert Road, Westmont, NJ, throughout the month of October, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.
The ACME GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Reusable Bag Program, which launched in August 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.
“We greatly appreciate ACME and its efforts and support in helping us in the battle against hunger in South Jersey,” said Fred Wasiak, CEO, Food Bank of South Jersey. “There is much work to be done to truly eradicate hunger in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties, but the support, compassion and campaigns of leading regional organizations, such as ACME, make all the difference in the world to thousands of food-insecure families, especially at this time of year.”
