Boyertown To Get A Boost From Giant Markets

BOYERTOWN PA – Thursday (Aug. 1, 2019) marked the start of Building a Better Boyertown’s month-long involvement in the “Giant Bags 4 My Cause” program, sponsored by the Giant supermarket at 173 Holly Rd., Gilbertsville PA.

The supermarket sells its reusable carrying bags at a price of $2.50 each, and the Boyertown area’s business booster organization is eligible to receive a $1 donation from Giant for every bag sold. Other recipients can be designated too. In a noon e-mail, Building a Better Boyertown said it hopes to sell 200 bags, and raise $200, for the effort.

The bags are located on displays around the store and at its checkouts.

Across all stores in the supermarket chain, since the program’s start during February 2019, Giant says it so far has donated more than $85,000 to local causes.
