Nigra Arts Center Selected as a Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program Beneficiary

The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts has been selected as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program for the month of June.

The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, which launched in April 2014, 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 Nigra Arts Center was selected as the June beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Hannaford located at 235 5th Avenue Ext., Gloversville. The Nigra Arts Center will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location throughout June. 

“We are honored to have been chosen to participate in this great program, which benefits the environment as well as the Nigra Arts Center. The public has always given generously to support us in the past and we hope they will continue to do so,” said Wally Hart, Executive Director of The Lexington Foundation, which operates the Nigra Arts Center. “Proceeds from this program will go toward our efforts to offer fun, inclusive, arts-themed activities and events to the public, including our upcoming New York State Summer Art Show and our six-week summer kid camp program, which starts in July.”
