We are excited to announce the #TopsTotesForChange program!

United Way has partnered with Tops to create a reusable bag that will be sold around the region. Proceeds will go to support United Way.
Thank you , Tops, for this amazing opportunity to promote and expand awareness of United Ways everywhere!

#TopsTotesForChange is a creative and imaginative way to support our community members through United Way while expanding awareness. This program will benefit United Way and Tompkins County because it identifies a source that may be the solution to a problem/challenge someone is facing and steadily increases exposure to the concept of living united as a shared community value.” - Cal Walker

Buy these bags at your local Tops to make your contribution through United Way! You can also be the solution by giving today at www.uwtc.org/GiveUnited.
