Big Y Community Bag and Giving Tag Program

This program is designed to make it easy for shoppers to give back to their local community while supporting the environment.

Each time a shopper purchases the $2.50 Community Bag with the Giving Tag, they will have the power to direct a $1 donation to a local non-profit of their choice within 7 days of their purchase.

If the customer does not direct the donation within 7 days, it will automatically be donated to the non-profit that each store's leadership has selected for the month.
