    Save Your Dash's Receipts

    Your nearest Dash's Market | 1770 Hertel Ave. Buffalo, NY 14216

    Parkside Community Association is introducing our easiest fundraiser ever!

    1. Every time you shop at Dash's Market, please save your receipt.

    2. Turn original receipts into the PCA office, 2318 Main Street (near the corner of W. Oakwood), anytime (drop in our mail slot!) and we will submit them to Dash's office for a cash back.

    There are no increased premiums, no sign up forms, no fees, no new key tags. Simply drop off your receipts. We will take care of the rest. Thanks to Dash's Tape Saver Program, your shopping dollars will be put to use to further our mission to advocate, communicate and act on behalf of the Parkside neighborhood to preserve and enhance the quality of life.
