BAGS to BENCHES PROGRAM
Penn Valley is hoping to be the recipient of a bench from the Giant Food Stores Bags to Benches Program. It takes approximately 10,000 plastic bags to make one recycled bench. To show our commitment to going green and helping to preserve our environment, we want to collect 10,000 bags and recycle them. Please send your plastic grocery bags to Penn Valley. Bags must be empty and dry. There will be a collection box in the lobby. Watch our tally grow and see how long it takes us to reach 10,000!
