Nothing like a Small Act That Gives Back that’s also delicious. To celebrate National Oreo Cookie Day, we surprised members and employees with free Oreo cookies.
Small Act at Market Basket

Small Act at Market Basket

To help some of our neighbors with their grocery shopping, we gave shoppers at the Fletcher Street Market Basket in Lowell a free tote bag and a Market Basket gift card. We certainly enjoyed seeing the smiles on our community members’ faces as they received a small gift to help with their purchase.

Ringing in the Holiday Season
Ringing in the Holiday Season

Dozens of our team members braved the cold to ring in the holiday season and support the Salvation Army. Volunteers collected donations outside the Market Basket locations in Lowell, Chelmsford, Westford and Nashua. The Red Kettle Drive is just one way the organization helps people and families throughout our community during the holiday season.

Serving our Veterans

We had a wonderful time serving at the Veterans Breakfast at Dracut Senior Center. This Breakfast was extra special because it took place the week of Veterans Day. Thank you to all of the brave men and women who have served to protect our country and to all those who continue to serve today. We enjoyed giving back in this small way.

Thanks to our generous members and employees, we collected hundreds of toys to benefit Toys for Local Children, an organization dedicated to making holiday wishes come true for families in need. Games, action figures, coloring books, dolls and more filled the boxes at each of our branch locations. Thank you to everyone who donated!
