Reusable grocery bags reduce plastic trash and help preserve our oceans and planet. From Aug. 18-Nov. 9, they’ll do even more during the Bags for Change event that allows Lucky’s Market shoppers in Sarasota to support Mote and the young people we serve.

Each time you bring a reusable bag to Lucky’s, you’ll receive a wooden dime that can be used to support Mote or other participating nonprofits. At the end of the quarter, Lucky’s will double the amount raised. Your support helps Mote share science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) knowledge with students historically underrepresented in marine science, opening doors for fulfilling careers.
