ANSONIA — The Derby Historical Society, a nonprofit serving Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton, is generating donations through the Stop & Shop Giving Tag Program.

Launched in May, the reusable bag program facilitates community support to make a difference in the places shoppers live and work.

When a shopper purchases a $2.50 reusable bag at any Stop & Shop store, he or she may direct a $1 donation to a local nonprofit by using the attached “giving tag”.

The Derby Historical Society has already made several donations through the giving tag.
