ORISKANY, N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County (CCEOC) and Oneida County 4-H has been selected as the July beneficiaries for two Hannaford Programs by local store leadership!
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County has been selected as the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program Beneficiary. Hannaford store is located at 4593 Commercial Dr., New Hartford, NY. The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, which launched in April 2014, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support intending to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work. CCEOC will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased during July. Shoppers also have the opportunity to purchase a reusable Community Bag online via Hannaford-To-Go to support the organization of the month!
Oneida County 4-H, a program of Cornell Cooperative Extension Oneida County, has been selected as the Hannaford Bloomin’ 4 Good Program beneficiary by the Hannaford located at 808 West Chestnut St. Rome, NY. The Hannaford Bloomin’ 4 Good Program, launched in August 2021, is an easy way for shoppers to give back. Every Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker sold supports a non-profit local to the Hannaford in which it was purchased.
“The Oneida County 4-H program staff are thrilled to be selected as the July beneficiary of Hannaford’s Bloomin’ 4 Good Program!” Lisa Farney, 4-H Youth Development Educator. “We could not provide the educational opportunities we do without local community support. Participation in 4-H programming has long-reaching effects, with 4-H’ers being 4x more likely to contribute to their communities and twice as likely to make healthier lifestyle choices. The donations to Oneida County 4-H help today’s youth become the leaders of tomorrow!”
Every year CCE tallies nearly 1.7 million interactions with New York residents: children, families, farmers, veterans, entrepreneurs, community organizers, and more, all working for a better future.
Nearly 300,000 children and teens from New York’s largest cities to smallest towns are involved with 4-H, learning skills for healthy living, civic engagement, and scientific discovery.
