Tokens for Bags Charities Fall 2021

Every six months, we support new local charities through our Tokens for Bags® program. Instead of giving out bags, we give customers the opportunity to donate five cents (the cost of the bag) to a charity of their choice. Our Tokens for Bags® program has raised over $857,745 for thousands of local charities since 1994, saving over 17.1 million bags from polluting the environment!
