A Better Way of Giving… Better Bucks!

Better Bucks - A Better Way of Giving

Better Bucks – A Better Way of Giving

In an attempt to discourage panhandling by individuals who use the cash they receive from donors to feed substance abuse problems while at the same time remaining compassionate to those with legitimate needs, participating businesses have joined together the the Flagstaff Police Department and the Shadows Foundation to develop a system that allows donors to buy vouchers for non-alcoholic and non-tobacco related goods at participating businesses.

Vouchers allow donors to express their compassion free from concerns that their charity will be used by panhandlers to engage in self-destruction, and vouchers benefit participating retailers by providing increased business.

You can pick up your Better Bucks at the following locations:

Bashas’ Woodlands Village

UPS Store – Walmart Shopping Center

Catholic Charities Community Services

Flagstaff Farmers Market 

Eastside Family Medicine

Flagstaff Soap Company

Marjele’s Sports Grill

Flagstaff Visitor Center

Good Will Industries



Better Bucks can only be redeemed for food and important
living essentials. When giving Better Bucks you know
how your donation is being used.

For more information, please call the Shadows Foundation at (928) 235-6599.
