The Big Y Community Bag and Giving Tag Program is designed to make it easy for Big Y customers to contribute to their local community while supporting the environment. The program offers a Community Bag and Giving Tag that support local non-profits in the communities that Big Y serves.
How does the program work?
Every reusable bag sold results in a $1 donation to a local non-profit. When a shopper purchases the Community Bag featuring the Giving Tag, they are given the opportunity to direct the $1 donation to a local non-profit that is important to them through the Giving Tag. If the shopper does not direct the donation within 7 days, the $1 donation will automatically be directed to the non-profit chosen each month by store leadership at that store location.
This program benefits education, civic, health & wellness, hunger relief, and military/veterans organizations that are local to each Big Y location.
