Our One Dime at a Time Program provides an incentive to reuse grocery bags and develop stronger communities. At the register, you have the option to receive a 10¢ per reusable bag refund, or you can choose to donate your refund to that month’s selected local non-profit organization.

 

The two Indiana stores are delighted to support January, February & March’s recipient: Love on a Leash, an all-volunteer group of ordinary people with extraordinary pets bringing moments of joy, one visit at a time – to nursing homes, hospices, treatment centers, shelters & more! The funds raised will support their Barks & Books Program, where children read out loud to a companion - encouraging literacy and self-esteem by shifting performance pressure off the child. Get involved or volunteer at loveonaleashindy.org
