August-Give Back Where it Counts Back Program at Mahwah ACME



Mahwah Museum Society Inc. Celebrates Selection as an ACME GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Reusable Bag Program Beneficiary. Mahwah Museum has been selected as
a beneficiary of the ACME GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Reusable Bag Program from August 15 through the entire month of September.

The ACME GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Reusable Bag Program, which launched in August 2018, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to
make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.

We were selected as the August-September beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the ACME located in Mahwah. Mahwah Museum Society Inc. will receive a $1 donation every time the $3.00 reusable GIVE BACK WHERE IT COUNTS Bag is purchased at this location during August, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.

We will use these funds to continue to mount new exhibits, to arrange for lectures and gallery talks and to create even more joy for children of all ages at the Donald Cooper Model RR. The funds will also allow us to continue to collect and archive the story of Mahwah and the surrounding community.
