Buy a Schnucks Giving Bag for the Y

The YMCA of Rock River Valley is excited to have been chosen as the June recipient of the Schnucks - Bags 4 My Case program. The Schnucks – Bags 4 My Cause program launched in May 2017 and is designed to support local not-for-profits through the sale of the reusable Giving bag.  

The Y was selected by Schnucks store leadership as the June beneficiary of the program at the 11th Street Schnucks store in Rockford. For every reusable Giving bag with the message “Giving is in the Bag” purchased at the 11th Street Schnucks during June, the Y will receive a $1 donation. The bags are sold for $2.99.

Imagine if all 7,500 Y member households purchased just one bag - that's a $7500 donation to the Y! All funds raised will support the YMCA annual campaign, which gos directly to programs that serve those with the greatest need in our community--helping to close the achievement gap, keep kids in school and prevent childhood obesity. Funds provide financial assistance for membership, camp, youth leadership, academic enrichment, high school completion programs and much more. Click here to learn more about giving at the Y.
