HCHC and Hy-Vee Red Bag Program

Give Back in Mount Pleasant: Hy-Vee Reusable Bag Program Aims to Eliminate Single-Use Plastics While Donating to Henry County Health Center Foundation


(Mount Pleasant, Iowa) – Henry County Health Center Foundation has been selected by the Mount Pleasant Hy-Vee store leadership to benefit from the Hy-Vee Reusable Red Bag Program for the month of May.  For every $2.50 reusable Red Bag purchased at the Mount Pleasant Hy-Vee in May HCHC Foundation will receive a $1 donation.

“This past year has presented some changes and challenges,” said Mark Hempen, Director of HCHC Foundation. “Many of last year’s planned events had to be cancelled or postponed.  We are thrilled to be participating in this innovative program that makes it possible for shoppers to give to the HCHC Foundation by buying these reusable bags.  We appreciate the community support in this important initiative to make a difference.”

Every month, at every Hy-Vee location, a different local non-profit is selected to benefit from the sale of these special reusable Red Bags to help reduce single-use plastics in the environment. HCHC Foundation was selected as the May beneficiary by leadership at the store located in Mount Pleasant.

Henry County Health Center Foundation was founded in 1990, and works to raise funds for the purchase of new medical equipment, support provider recruitment efforts, and other important health and wellness related initiatives throughout the county.
