Bin Donated Announces Second Annual Charity Blowout

CHICAGO June 26, 2012

Bin Donated is proud to announce our Second Annual Charity Blowout presented by BMO Harris Bank.  Bin Donated and BMO Harris Bank will host a giveaway of nearly 10,000lbs of upscale hygiene, bath and body products to over 40 non-profits in Chicago.

The event is Saturday, June 30th, to celebrate the giveaway along with the Bin Donated’s Premiere on ABC’s Secret Millionaire, July 1st. 

Last year in June, Bin Donated hosted a massive giveaway of nearly 8,000lbs and over $250,000 of toiletries/hygiene products to over 30 Chicago based charity organizations.  Many organizations walked away with nearly $10,000 in donated items.  This year we expect will be larger, with close to 40-50 organizations present.  The combination of nearly 10,000lbs of hygiene as well as other select items for distribution to 40 plus partner charities, this is perhaps the largest collaborative charity give away of its kind.

 “This is our biggest giveaway of the year and it's a perfect way to celebrate Bin Donated’s mission.  Many of the charities count on this critical donation to support their programs for women and children.  We are extremely grateful to H2Oplus for their generous donation of wonderful product and thrilled to have BMO Harris Bank sponsor the event.   It is a testament to BMO Harris’s commitment to support not only one, but over 40 organizations in the Chicago non-profit community,” said Geeta Singh, Executive Director of Bin Donated.

“Our ongoing partnership with Bin Donated is one our employees especially enjoy,” said Judy Rice, SVP Community Affairs, BMO Harris Bank. “By sponsoring and volunteering at many Bin Donated events, we proudly and proactively assist the organization’s efforts to enhance charitable giving throughout Chicago.”
