Scrap for Vets has a new “go-green” campaign based out of the Feed Our Vets, Utica, NY Pantry. Supporters can now help Veterans by donating unused scrap metal laying around their house, business or farm.
This labor-intensive program is headed up by FOV Founder & Executive Director Rich Synek (aka “The Hardest Working Man in Non-Profit”), who spends a good part of each week collecting, dissembling, and hauling tons of scrap metal to raise funds for the Utica food pantry. Through the magic of his hard work, Rich is able to take old appliances, vehicles, and other scrap and turn them into nutritious food for hungry Veteran families.
Among the items that can be accepted for donation are pots, pans, wire, pipes, steel, stainless steel, tin, aluminum, brass, all appliances, water heaters and furnaces. Feed Our Vets is happy to pick up any and all appliances, regardless of condition.
All scrap donations are tax write-offs, and 100% of the proceeds go to Feed Our Vets programs to ending Veteran Hunger.
