Vending Outreach Programs
Did you know that many charities which benefit various areas of need receive much of their funding from partnering with individual vending operators? You can sponsor a charity with a small monthly fee for each machine you have placed. In return, the charity allows you to place their sticker on your machines in order to find missing children or raise awareness of a particular public need. The credibility of this partnership is a great door-opener for finding locations for your vending machines! Below are a select few of the worthy charities which welcome vendor sponsoring. You may also want to check with charities that are specific to your area.
