Exciting New Opportunity: Bags for Change!

Nature’s Academy is fortunate enough to be one of five finalists in the Lucky’s Market Bags for Change challenge! This friendly competition provides an opportunity for community members to support local nonprofits.

The Bags for Change challenge was created by Lucky’s Market to “create lasting change in the communities they serve.” Similar to Nature’s Academy, their mission is to bring positive impacts to their local community and beyond. They accomplish their mission through providing delicious food to the public and by supporting organizations that need funding to continue their positive missions.

If you would like to assist Nature’s Academy in continuing positive change in your local community, then don’t forget to vote for us on Lucky’s Market’s Facebook page from July 23rd to July 30th! After accessing their Facebook page, click on the “Bags for Change Voting” tab, search for Nature’s Academy and select us. Lucky’s Market will decide the Challenge winners based on the number of votes. If Nature’s Academy moves into one of the top three spots, we will be designated partners for the next three months. As a Lucky’s Market partner, we can set up a table in the store and spread the word about STEM Literacy and environmental stewardship. Our nonprofit will also receive 10 cents from every reusable bag donor and Lucky’s Market matches the donations at the end of each quarter!

Any proceeds received from our partnership with Lucky’s Market will fund many of our educational programs, including the STEM Literacy Project located in Manatee County, FL. Through this project, underserved fifth grade students are given the opportunity to attend an outdoor marine science-based field trip that they otherwise would not have been able to. Each one of our students is also given a reusable water bottle to remain hydrated during our active outdoor programs, while also inspiring them to repeat the lessons learned about conserving resources long after they leave. A truly beneficial program in our local community! 

Nature’s Academy would like to extend a special thank you to Lucky’s market for this wonderful opportunity! To get involved in our organization, email us at info@naturesacademy.org, like us on Facebook, or visit our website for more information.
