Welcome to the BACAS Maine website. We are a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to support and promote the cultural and performing arts for Bucksport and surrounding communities. This site will not only highlight our initiatives but also try to garner more support for the arts in the Bucksport Bay Community.

We are elated to announce that BACAS has been selected to be a part of the exciting Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program designed to create revenue streams for nonprofits like us.

For every blue Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag with the good karma message purchased during July 2016 at their Bucksport Hannaford, $1 will be donated to our organization! The bags retail for just $2.29 and are located at the reusable bag rack.

Imagine if everyone that supports us purchases just ONE bag, we will receive a donation of at least $100!  Imagine if everyone bought TWO!  These beautiful blue Hannaford Helps Reusable Bags can support us while also helping to eliminate paper/plastic use!

To learn more about this amazing opportunity, please visit www.hannaford.bags4mycause.com.

Lets get started! We can begin by spreading the news to our friends and family by calling, sending emails, and posting on social media! The more people who learn about the program and purchase the bright blue Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag during July, the more money we will raise!
