Hope comes in Bags
Brookshire Brothers has been fostering the giving spirit with a program called Brown Bags of Hope.
Customers can purchase the bags, which are then distributed by the store teams to where they are most needed, whether that’s to food pantries, schools or local law enforcement agencies.
The brown bags include toiletry bags, school supply bags, meal bags and Holiday bags.
All contain non-perishable items that are part of Brookshire Brothers’ “OWN” or private label offerings.
“This program ties directly to who we are as ‘a community grocer’ and an employee owned company,” the company said in a press release. “As a company, we are known to match our customers’ generosity by donating additional bags to address a specific or urgent need in a community.”
Dublin’s Brookshire Brothers has a display explaining the program and will be giving to locals in need with the help of its giving customer throughout the entire holiday season.
A box is also set up in the front to collect toys to give to local kids for Christmas.
