Big Y

Big Y is committed to making a difference in the communities their shoppers live and work in through the Community Bag & Giving Tag Program.

The Big Y Community Bag and Giving Tag Program launched on January 11, 2019. Every month, at each Big Y store, a new non-profit is chosen to be the beneficiary of the Community Bag. The Community Bag supports Education, Health & Wellness, Hunger Relief, Civic and Military/Veterans organizations. Attached to the Community Bag is the Giving Tag, which allows the shopper to direct the $1 purchase donation to any cause of their choice.

This exciting innovation of the B4MC program allows for a much broader base of non-profits to receive donations through the program and empowers the shopper the power to help the non-profits that are making a difference in their communities. In turn, our outreach will expand from one non-profit per store per month to hundreds or even thousands per month.
