UPPER TOWNSHIP — The Historical Preservation Society of Upper Township (HPSUT) has been selected as a beneficiary of the ACME Give Back Where it Counts Reusable Bag Program for August and September 2019 at ACME stores in Seaville and 34th Street in Ocean City. 

The program, launched in August, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work. 

The HPSUT was selected as the beneficiary of the program by ACME store leadership. The HPSUT will receive a $1 donation every time the $3 reusable Give Back Where it Counts bag is purchased at this location through the month of September, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag attached to the bag.

“This is a great example of community support for our historical society and we are pleased to have been chosen by ACME,” said Carol Williams, president of the HPSUT board.

The HPSUT is working with Upper Township on a special grant application to establish an Upper Township History Museum in the former Township Hall in Tuckahoe. Anyone who would like to volunteer or share some thoughts about fundraising should contact Robert Holden, HPSUT historian, at holdenon@comcast.net or (856) 506-2153 (leave a voice mail.)
