We created a donation bin that gave a philanthropic group in California an upper-hand in the clothes collecting game.
The mission is to encourage people to share gently used children’s clothes to one of their donation bins. Supporting local families in need is the mission for this group. Originally, the foundation created their own bins out of plastic containers and laminated printer paper signs hoisted above. This allowed them to accept donations but they needed their own donation bin. One that had their image and brand attached to it.
Our first box was visually enticing and increased their donations collected over the next few months. With their brand and colors all over, it sent the right message to the community.
With the flood of donations, volunteers started to apply to the organization and they now have over 75 helpers for the cause. This was what the organization was looking for but, as Voom is known to do, we found new applications to make this box even better.
Using falcon board, we were able to create a donation bin that was more sturdy than the first version. The use of falcon board gave rigidity to the structure and a different look. A graphic design alteration also gave the donation bin ease of build for the customer. They lay flat when shipped and will last longer so more people will be able to donate more clothes. Needless to say, they were an improvement on the former.
