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

The “Hannaford Health Hero” program will recognize the work of 16 volunteers who inspire others within the community to make healthy choices for life on behalf of non-profit organizations. One honoree from a Massachusetts-based registered 501(c)(3) organization will be announced each week beginning in early June.

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 an outstanding volunteer 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.”

Hannaford Supermarkets invites executive directors or volunteer coordinators of registered 501(c)(3) organizations throughout Massachusetts to nominate a volunteer or group of volunteers from their agency as a Hannaford Health Hero. Nominations may be submitted online at www.hannafordhealthhero.com.

Nominations should describe in 200 words or less how the designated individual or group of individuals inspires others to make healthy lifestyle choices while engaged in volunteer work for a non-profit organization in Massachusetts. Nominees may be cited for a specific action or their overall commitment to health and wellness.

Nominees are required to reside in the state of Massachusetts and must be 13 years of age or older. Nominees under 18 years of age require parental consent.

Hannaford Supermarkets operates 26 stores located throughout the northeast and north-central corridors of Massachusetts.
