2023 Fundraising Events
BUFFALO EXCHANGE TOKEENS FOR BAGS
We have been selected as a recipient of the Buffalo Exchange Tokens for Bags® program from January through June 2023!! You can now donate to us just by shopping at Buffalo Exchange Costa Mesa. Instead of a plastic bag, the Tokens for Bags® program offers every customer who makes a purchase one “token” valued at five cents (the cost to produce a bag) to donate to one of several local charities selected by the store. The program has generated over $893,860 for hundreds of local nonprofit organizations since 1994 and has saved over 17.87 million plastic bags from the landfill. Go get secondhand clothes and contribute to a good cause!! Buffalo Exchange
