Lucky's Market Tallahassee Bags for Change program is currently benefiting PACE Leon!

This makes supporting PACE SO EASY! All you have to do is bring a reusable... shopping bag with you to Lucky's. The cashier will give you a wooden dime for every bag you bring. Then place those wooden dimes into PACE's slot in the peg board on your way out the door.

At the end of the campaign, the wooden dimes will be tallied up and Lucky's will send PACE a donation!
