CHESTERTOWN — Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne’s was the March recipient of Acme’s Give Back Where It Counts reusable bag program. Also, through a partnership with Acme and Horizons National, Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne’s was able to donate a bag of groceries and a grocery gift card to each of five local families.

Through the Support of the Chestertown Acme and local shoppers, Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne’s received $1 for every $5 reusable bag purchased during March.

Shoppers were able to support their community and their environment through an easy and meaningful purchase.

Angel Cornelius, store director of the Chestertown Acme, worked thoughtfully to package grocery bags for families and the Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne’s team was excited to present families with the gifts, according to a news release.

“We are very grateful for Acme and Horizons National for making this project possible,” Teresa Dellamura, program coordinator for Horizons, said in the news release.

Acme has gone above and beyond this past year to support local communities during the pandemic, the news release states.

The Give Back Where It Counts reusable bag program is a testament to Acme’s generosity and support of groups focused on education, civic, health and wellness, hunger relief, and military and veterans organizations.

Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne’s is an affiliate of Horizons National, a nationwide network of out-of-school academic, enrichment and social-emotional learning programs working with children and families from underserved communities.
