Can drive to benefit the Honor Flight Syracuse at Destiny USA this weekend

SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – Destiny USA and recycling company TOMRA have teamed up for a “Yes we CAN for Veterans” bottle and can drive benefiting Honor Flight Syracuse.

The fundraiser wants residents to bring their cans and bottles, which are worth six cents instead of the usual five, to Destiny USA this weekend, April 9-10, with proceeds helping Honor Flight Syracuse transport veterans of CNY to Washington DC to experience the nation’s capital war memorials.

“By the simple task of collecting bottles and cans and bringing them to our ‘Yes we CAN for Veterans’ event on drop-off day, you will help support Honor Flight Syracuse and veterans in our area,” said Stephen. Nee, Executive Vice President, TOMRA. “We are extremely grateful to our employees and customers for helping us with these efforts, which is very personal to me and a significant effort on many levels.”

Destiny USA will be accepting donations from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the corner of Solar Street and Hiawatha Boulevard. Those who drop off their cans and bottles will receive a Destiny USA Savings Passport that will help them save at participating establishments.

“Nothing is more important than showing our deep appreciation for the service and sacrifice of the veterans we serve throughout Central New York,” said Kevin Bradley, president of Honor Flight Syracuse. “We are so honored and grateful that TOMRA and Destiny USA are supporting our Honor Flight Syracuse outreach efforts and donations for our veterans, helping to continue our mission to fly them to Washington, D.C. to receive honor and recognition. which they so rightfully deserve.”
