Angel Bins has helped schools and non profits raise $2 Million Dollars!!!
“It’s amazing that collecting unwanted shoes could do so much good.”
Founded in April 2012 as a unique fundraising program we have reached a major milestone having
generated over 2 million dollars for schools and non profit causes! Nevertheless, fundraising through shoe drives is a great solution. With nothing to buy, and nothing to sell, our non profit partners simply ask their supporters to clean out their closet donating shoes they no longer want in support of their cause. In addition, Angel Bins issues a check paying the non profit per pound.
It all began when the owner of a Los Angeles textile recycling warehouse envisioned a better option for fast fundraising ideas for school. Murtaza Haji’s business, Samiyatex, had been purchasing surplus from thrift shops for over 20 years: Why not offer the same to schools? Soon Angel Bins, was established as the company’s philanthropic branch, and began offering no cost recycling fundraisers.
