Tucson, AZ – July 5, 2023 – The Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault (SACASA) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Buffalo Exchange, a leading fashion retailer known for its commitment to sustainability and community engagement.
This collaboration aims to provide support and resources to survivors of sexual assault in the Southern Arizona community through the Buffalo Exchange Tokens for Bags® program.
Instead of giving out bags, customers have the opportunity to donate the cost of the bag to SACASA.
The program has generated over $926,000 for thousands of local nonprofit organizations since 1994 and has saved over 18 million plastic bags from the landfill.
“SACASA is so grateful to benefit from the generosity of Buffalo Exchange shoppers,” said SACASA director Katlyn Monje. “We have a lot of work to do, and the donations and awareness this partnership brings will undoubtedly support these important efforts and local survivors of sexual violence,” she added.
The money raised will be utilized to enhance vital services such as advocacy, medical forensic evaluation and recovery services while promoting awareness and prevention of sexual violence. SACASA provides a safe place for survivors to heal.
The work SACASA does is essential to the community,” says Buffalo Exchange Vice President Rebecca Block. “We’re honored to support their mission through our Tokens for Bags program and we look forward to seeing how our contribution can make a difference.”
