Corporations/businesses wishing to make a difference in the community by supporting the My Sister’s stores can take advantage of a unique and hassle-free donation opportunity – the My Sister’s Place Corporate Drop Bin Program.
My Sister’s Place Corporate Drop Bins collect large donations of clothing and household items from corporations/businesses and their interested employees via collection bins that the corporation/business agrees to host at one or more of their employee work sites. The bins are provided and set up free of charge by My Sister’s Place staff and are emptied on a regularly scheduled basis.
