We are so excited to share that Amorak Youth has been selected to benefit from Hannaford’s Bloomin’ 4 Good Program, created to support nonprofits across the communities they serve. For the month of September, a Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker from the Hannaford at South Glens Falls (27-41 Gansevoort Road) will brighten a home or make someone’s day while also directing a $1 donation to Amorak Youth! This is a great way to broaden awareness while raising donations for our organization to better serve our community. Let’s get started! Share the news with friends and family. Call, send emails and post on social media. The more bouquets sold, the more we can raise!
