BOSTON, Massachusetts – Hannaford Supermarkets today announced the return of an initiative that will honor Massachusetts volunteers for their commitment to promoting health and wellness in the community.

Hannaford Supermarkets will donate $500 to the non-profit on behalf of the recipient in recognition of the organization’s commitment to health and wellness. Additionally, the individual honoree will receive a $50 Hannaford gift card.
“At Hannaford, we strongly believe in promoting health and wellness within the communities we serve,” said Hannaford Supermarkets Community Relations Specialist Molly Tarleton. “I encourage non-profit organizations to shine a spotlight on outstanding volunteers by nominating them to be a Hannaford Health Hero. We look forward to hearing about the exceptional work that takes place each day in Massachusetts.”
