Tokens for Bags® Charities

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. Since 1994, we have raised over $704,200 for thousands of local nonprofit organizations through our Tokens for Bags® program, saving 14 million bags from polluting the environment.

Find your local Buffalo Exchange below and check out the charities you can give back to.
