Bin SPONSORSHIP

If you are a local business, place of worship, or property owner and wish to sponsor a bin on behalf of the men and women of the armed services throughout Westchester County, please contact us. We will donate a fixed amount monthly to the veterans on behalf of the bin sponsor.

Sponsoring a bin is a great way to support the veterans. Not only will the bins generate funds to support the veterans, but they will also raise awareness for the veterans' cause for all passersby. Bins will be cleaned and maintained on a weekly basis.
