High Hopes is August Beneficiary of Old Lyme ‘Big Y’s Community Bag Program,’ Aims to Reduce Single-Use Plastics  

OLD LYME – This year, local community non-profits are more in need of support than in any other time in the recent years’ past. Now shoppers can give back to the local community and help to reduce single-use plastics by purchasing a special reusable bag at Big Y.

High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Inc. has been selected by the Old Lyme Big Y store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Big Y Community Bag Program for the month of August.

The Big Y Community Bag Program is designed to give back to the local community with every reusable bag purchased.  This program offers a way for shoppers to give back as part of the regular weekly routine.

High Hopes will receive a $1 donation for every $2.50 reusable Big Y Community Bag purchased at the Big Y in Old Lyme. 

When asked her reaction to High Hopes being selected as this month’s beneficiary, Kitty Stalsburg, Executive Director of High Hopes said, “We are thrilled to be participating in this innovative program that makes it possible for shoppers to give back to local non-profits while reducing single-use plastic in the environment. We appreciate the community support in this important initiative to make a difference.”
