Paul Nigra Center selected for reusable bag program

GLOVERSVILLE — The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts, 2736 Route 30, has been selected as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program for the month of June, according to a news release.

The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, which was launched in April 2014, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work. The center was selected as the June beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Gloversville Hannaford, 235 Fifth Ave. Extension. The Nigra Arts Center will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable community bag is purchased at this location throughout this month.

“We are honored to have been chosen to participate in this great program, which benefits the environment as well as the Nigra Arts Center. The public has always given generously to support us in the past and we hope they will continue to do so,” said Wally Hart, executive director of The Lexington Foundation, which operates the Nigra Arts Center. “Proceeds from this program will go toward our efforts to offer fun, inclusive, arts-themed activities and events to the public, including our upcoming New York State Summer Art Show and our six-week summer kid camp program, which starts in July.”

The Nigra Arts Center, a non-profit community arts center, founded in 2015, provides art classes of all kinds, rotating art exhibitions, day camps for children, performances, special events and more to the community at large.
