Each quarter, Lucky’s Market partners with three organizations as the recipients of their Bags for Change program. During the quarter, guests who bring in reusable bags during their shopping are given a wooden dime (their bag credit). They can then choose to donate this dime to one of our three partner organizations. What’s more, Lucky’s Market will match each donation!
Gateway Greening has been chosen as a Lucky’s Market Bags for Change partner for the current quarter which ends on May 26, 2018. “Gateway Greening greatly appreciates being chosen for the Lucky’s Market Bags for Change program. Lucky’s Market has been a big supporter of Gateway Greening over the years, and we are grateful for this partnership,” said Matt Schindler, Executive Director of Gateway Greening.
Gateway Greening, a local nonprofit organization, educates and empowers people to strengthen their communities through gardening and urban agriculture. The support from Lucky’s Market and the St. Louis community will continue aiding over 200 community and school gardens in the St. Louis region, that can connect people to the land, to their food, and each other. Gateway Greening will be at the Rock Hill location on Sunday, March 18th, Sunday, April 15th, and Sunday, May 6th, from 1pm-4pm passing out information, and connecting to the community.
