Yesterday was a great day for Bestpac, your go-to paper bag manufacturers, as we had the privilege of visiting a Community Grocery Store based in Burnley. Our visit was not just about understanding the incredible work they're doing, but also about making a contribution to support their cause.
The Mission Behind the Community Grocery Store in Burnley
This grocery store serves as more than just a retail outlet; it's a lifeline for the local residents. Providing affordable groceries and essential items is the store's most visible function, but its impact goes far beyond that. Their focus on helping those who are facing financial hardships is indeed commendable.
What sets this Community Grocery Store apart is not just the food they offer. You can find a host of free support services available including job clubs, money management advice, healthy cooking classes, courses on exploring Christianity, and much more.
Why This Matters to Bestpac
As many of you know, community and sustainability are the two main pillars that drive our business here at Bestpac. Hence, when we came across an organisation whose values resonated so closely with ours, we knew we had to get involved. The grocery store's mission aligns perfectly with our core values.
Our Contribution: More Than Just Bags
We were thrilled to donate our paper food bags to this remarkable initiative. But these aren't just any bags; they are designed to be a sustainable alternative to single-use plastics. Our hope is that this small contribution can make a big difference in their ongoing efforts.
Yesterday's donation is a small step towards a larger goal of creating a sustainable and empowered community. We at Bestpac are incredibly excited to be part of this and look forward to future collaborations that make a real difference in people's lives.
