Reusable Bag Credit Donation Program
Results for February - August
From September – February, we will be collecting wooden tokens, representing each “refund dime,” to support the critical work of these nonprofit organizations:
Frisky’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center: Howard County, MD
Frisky’s is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit wildlife rehabilitation center located in Howard County, MD. They take in injured, orphaned, abandoned, or displaced wildlife. If you find an injured animal in your yard or along the side of the road, you can bring it to them for rehabilitation, where the goal is to always return them back to their natural home once they are well enough or old enough.
Asylee Women Enterprise: Baltimore, MD
Also known as “AWE“, this organization journeys with asylum seekers and other forced migrants as they navigate the immigration legal process, begin to heal from past trauma and rebuild their lives in Baltimore. AWE is the only program of its kind that primarily serves asylum seekers and offers wraparound services under one roof. Participants gather Monday through Thursday at their day program for English as a second language, job readiness, computer classes, parenting skills classes and wellness activities.
AWE’s unique model focuses on the importance of companionship and community where asylum seekers offer mutual support to one another in a safe and supportive environment.
Whitelock Community Farm: Baltimore, MD
Founded in 2010 when Reservoir Hill residents converted a vacant lot into an active urban farm with the help of hundreds of volunteers. The continued support of neighbors and the wider community has spirited their vision to improve access to healthy food.
Whitelock Community Farm works to create educational, skill building, and leadership development opportunities; increase access to healthy, affordable food; foster positive community activity; and promote dialogue about food access, neighborhood development, and environmental justice. WCF increases access to healthy food by distributing produce through a weekly farm stand and mobile market sites
All of the “dimes” will be tallied and donations will made to the charities thanks to your generosity! Beginning in March, 2021 we will collect for three new organizations. It’s completely up to you whether you’d like to keep your reusable bag refund or donate it to charity.
Be on the lookout for our charity collection bins, and think about giving back!
