Pair of Maine Icons Donate to 3Rs
Two high-profile companies, Tom’s of Maine and Hannaford Supermarkets, have made donations totaling $25,000 to Ruth’s Reusable Resources (3R’s). The $15,000 gift from Tom’s of Maine is being used to upgrade Ruth’s phone system, improve shipping methods, and purchase an electric pallet jack. The $10,000 Hannaford donation will help purchase new computers and hardwire Ruth’s distribution center.
Hannaford’s gift marks its second to Ruth’s Reusable Resources, the first coming when the organization operated from BesseySchool in Scarborough.
“These donations have not only bolstered our ability to make better use of work space; they’re also making the work day much easier and satisfying for our small staff and large corps of volunteers,” Many thanks to Hannaford and Tom's of Maine!
