United Way Summer Meals

“United” in raising funds to support Summer Meals in the Greater Capital Region!

United Way of the Greater Capital Region works with community organizations, food providers, schools and parents to make sure that kids and teens have a healthy and fun summer.  In 2013, the local data showed that out of the 42,000 children who eat free/reduced price meals during the school year, only 1 in 7 accessed free summer meals. United Way and its partners set out to bridge this gap by increasing the number of meal sites and starting alternate methods of meal delivery.

Welcome to CLYNK!

CLYNK is the new and convenient way to redeem bottles and cans at Hannaford Supermarkets. It is the only bottle redemption system that allows you to create a personal account, accumulate a balance and use your money at your discretion. Instead of feeding a reverse vending machine, one bottle and can at a time, CLYNK is a drop and go service for bottle redemption. Simply fill your green CLYNK bag, tag it and drop it off at your local Hannaford. Plus, you can donate funds to local charities and track the environmental impact of your recycling with CLYNK.

How CLYNK Works

Bag it: Fill a CLYNK bag with redeemable bottles and cans. Tag it: Adhere your bag tag to the CLYNK bag. The bag tag identifies the account that will receive credit for the bag being dropped. Drop it: Drop the bag off at a participating Hannaford. Done: Scan each bag tag at the CLYNK drop door, open the door, drop the CLYNK bag(s) in, close the door and you are done. Your bottles and cans will be sent to CLYNK to be counted and a credit will be applied to your CLYNK account in 2 business days.

Getting your money: When you go to the CLYNK kiosk inside a participating Hannaford, scan your CLYNK card and enter your PIN. You will be able to check your balance or print out a payment slip. Payment slips can be cashed at any Hannaford for cash or slips can be put towards groceries.

How to Sign Up

Signing up for CLYNK is easy. You can sign-up at clynk.com or at the CLYNK kiosk in your local participating Hannaford. To create a CLYNK account you just need to provide your name, one point of contact like a phone number or email, and then you create a pin number and answer a security question.

When you sign up you get everything you need to start CLYNKing right away and for free. You get your CLYNK card, your first 10 bags and tags. Plus, through the end of 2016, you get a valuable coupon to Hannaford Supermarkets. After you use your first 10 free bags, you purchase more at Hannaford. A box of 10 bags is $1.75 plus tax. Bag tags always print for free from the CLYNK kiosk inside your local Hannaford.

Additional Benefits of CLYNK
