Lake Sunapee VNA has been selected as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Bloomin’ 4 Good Program for the month of November 2023.
The Hannaford Bloomin’ 4 Good Program, which 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 nonprofit organization local to the Hannaford in which it was purchased.
Selected by local store leadership at the Hannaford located in New London, Lake Sunapee VNA will receive a $1 donation for every Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker purchased at this store during November.
“Flowers can make someone’s day, brighten a room or spread a smile, especially as we enter the holiday season,” said Cathy Raymond, Development Officer. “We are grateful to Hannaford for supporting us in this way.”
