WHAT IS CHARITY VENDING?
Charity vending is a partnership between a vending route operator and a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. The relationship provides a method for each to benefit from supporting a worthy common cause. The route operator places his vending unit in a location with the promise to donate a small part of the proceeds to the charity. The charity provides labels for the vending units to display the affiliation.
The vending route operator benefits by being allowed to place his unit free of commissions. Plus – charity sponsored units usually enjoy a much greater return than non- sponsored units. The charity benefits by receiving a small donation each month from the vending route operator.

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE VENDORS FOR VETERANS AS MY OFFICIAL CHARITY?
