Hannaford Giving Tag Program to Support Saratoga Lake

SARATOGA — The Saratoga Lake Protection and Improvement District (SLPID), which is committed to the protection and improvement of Saratoga Lake, has begun generating donations through the Hannaford Giving Tag Program. The Giving Tag Program, launched in February 2020, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support by making a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work, while being good to the environment. Shoppers purchasing the $2.50 reusable Community or Fight Hunger Bag at any Hannaford store can direct a $1 donation online to the Saratoga Lake Protection and Improvement District using the attached tag.

“Through the Hannaford Giving Tag Program is the opportunity to give to local food pantries and food banks, providing nourishing meals to those in need plus protect the environment by using reusable shopping bags and assist the Saratoga Lake Protection and Improvement District with continuing educational outreach and lake quality programs. Within seven days of purchasing a Hannaford reusable community shopping bag, use the attached tag and submit the code online, directing the extra $1.00 to be used toward the Saratoga Lake Protection and Improvement District,” said Lake District Administrator Cristina Connolly in a press release. 

The Lake District is a non-profit government agency. Founded in 1986, ensuring the preservation of real property values and public recreational activities by improving water quality. SLPID employs Lake Stewards to inspect and wash incoming and outgoing boats for aquatic invasive species spread and prevention, conducts educational outreach programs for the public, water testing, and aquatic weed harvesting, among other tasks.
