Seekonk Land Conservation Trust (SLCT) Celebrates Selection as a Stop & Shop Community Bag Recipient


Seekonk, MA – Seekonk Land Conservation Trust has been selected as a beneficiary of the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program for the month of February.

Launched in May 2019, the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.

SLCT was selected as the February beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Stop & Shop, 1475 Newman Avenue, Seekonk, MA. SLCT will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during February, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.

“The Land Trust is excited to be chosen and looks forward to fulfilling its mission preserving open land in our community and promoting conservation, stewardship, and environmental awareness throughout Seekonk", said Tom Webb, President of the Board of Trustees. “Bringing awareness to conservation through reusable shopping bags is a great way everyone can participate in maintaining the scenic beauty of our community and limiting litter."

SLCT is a nonprofit founded in 1967 and has preserved over 700 acres in Seekonk through acquisition and conservation restrictions, and in recent years assisted in many more land preservation successes with the town Community Preservation Committee. These preserved properties enrich our daily lives and enhance what remains of the beautiful rural character of Seekonk. Learn more by visiting  or follow us on
