BMO Harris Employees and Veterans Send Off Donations for Operation Support Our Troops America
As part of this year's BMO Employee Volunteer Day, BMO Harris Bank branches throughout Illinois donated over $7,000 worth of items to Operation Support Our Troops America (OSOT America).
The bank partnered with Bin Donated for the OSOT America donation drive, a Chicago-based charity specializing in partnering with companies to collect and distribute in-kind donations to Chicago area non-profits.
Employees and Bin Donated delivered the 650 pounds of items from branches across Illinois to the Operation Support Our Troops Warehouse in Lisle on June 14. Items included toiletries, first aid supplies, medicine, and food. Marisol Wallscetti, BMO Harris Bank Manager and Co-Chair of the bank's Veterans Advisory Council, led the team effort on Thursday.
"Bin Donated is thrilled to partner with BMO Harris for the second year. This is a fantastic way to engage the employees and the community for an important cause and we are proud to be involved," said Geeta Singh, Bin Donated's Executive Director.
