Fight Hunger This Winter: Access was selected as the February beneficiary by local store leadership at the Stop & Shop located at 1094 Killingly Commons Drive, Dayville CT. Access will receive a $1 donation for every $10.99 Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet purchased in February. All the funds raised will go directly to the Access Food Pantries located in Danielson, Willimantic, and the Mobile Food Pantry to help families in need this year.
The Stop & Shop Bloomin’ 4 Good Program, which launched in February 2021, is an easy way for shoppers to give back as part of the regular shopping routine. Every $10.99 Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker sold supports a hunger organization local to the Stop & Shop in which it was purchased. According to Feeding America, every $1 donation to a local hunger organization can provide 10 or more meals to someone in need.
“What a beautiful way to give back, help to fight hunger in our local community, and make a room, or home even brighter,” said Kathleen Krider, Senior Director of Community Engagement and Resource Management of Access. “Now they can fight hunger too! We are thrilled to be chosen to benefit from this unique and impactful Stop & Shop Program, as the demands of those in need are higher than ever this year.”
The Access Community Action Agency is designated by the federal and state government as the anti-poverty agency in northeast Connecticut. Access provides food, affordable housing, job readiness services, and other pathways to economic self-reliance for vulnerable limited-income families and individuals throughout the region.
