We are so excited to share that Santa Fe Waystation Food Pantry has been selected to be a part of the Hy-Vee Reusable Bag program that supports local non-profits, which is designed to make it easy for customers to contribute to their local community while supporting the environment.
For the month of April, each time a $2.50 red "My Heart" Reusable Bag is purchased at the
Hy-Vee located at 8900 West 135th St., Overland Park KS, $1 will be donated to Santa Fe Waystation, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag. This is a great way to raise awareness, support the environment and fundraise for our cause.
Everyone can help by spreading the news to friends and family. Call, send emails, and post on social media. Then, on April 1, 2021, head to HyVee and purchase your reusable bag. The more people who learn about the program and purchase the $2.50 red "My Heart" Reusable Bag during the month of April, the more money we will raise.
Thank you for your support!
