Tops Launches Education Tote For Change Program


Williamsville, New York-based Tops Friendly Markets is adding a new bag design for its Tops Totes for Change program to support local schools in the community. 

This program encourages shoppers to purchase a reusable bag with a special charity design for $2.69, with $1 of the proceeds being donated back to the local community.

The Tops in Education bag will join four other charitable bags, supporting the United Way, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Feeding America and Children’s Miracle Network.

Within those organizations, the funds are benefitting area local chapters, including children’s hospitals and area food banks.

“Our consumers have a wide array of reusable bags to choose from that consist of cloth and recycled materials, which can easily and economically be purchased at the store. To see consumers make the choice, however, to give back to these charities by purchasing a Tops Totes for Change bag is truly heartwarming,” said Kathy Sautter, public and media relations manager.

To date, Tops has donated more than $1.5 million to local schools through the Tops in Education program. Since its inception, Tops has raised $488,537 for area charities.

In addition to its philanthropic mission, the program helps the company reduce its carbon footprint. In 2021, it reduced its use of plastic bags and film by 490 tons.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
