Commissaries offer free reusable bags

FORT LEE, Va. — Commissary shoppers can get free reusable shopping bags imprinted with important contact information about services available to them thanks to a partnership with Military OneSource.

Beginning Oct. 28, commissary patrons worldwide will receive the free shopping bags, distributed one-per-customer while supplies last. Military OneSource distributed 4,800 cases of bags to the Defense Commissary Agency.  

The bags are one way the program reaches out where the military community lives, works, plays and shops. Serving over seven million patrons per month worldwide, the commissary is a great resource to get the bags in the hands of military members and their families. 

Military OneSource is a DoD-funded program that provides free confidential help, tools and information to active duty, National Guard and reserve service members, their immediate family members and survivors anytime. DeCA, along with Military OneSource and National Industries for the Blind (NIB) who are providing the bags, is honored to take part in such an important endeavor.
