Eric Tetler serves as founder and president of Windfield Alloys in Atkinson, New Hampshire. Aside from work, Eric Tetler supports The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army accepts monetary donations, as well as donated clothing and goods to resell, though there are three lesser known ways you can donate to the organization.
1. Flight Miles – If you travel a lot or have a qualifying credit card, you may have accumulated some extra flight miles to be used later. The Salvation Army has partnered with both Delta and United Airlines, enabling the charity to accept flight miles as a form of donation. Flight mile donations must be for at least 1,000 miles.
2. Your Old Vehicle – If you are getting a new car, instead of selling your old one you might consider donating it to The Salvation Army. The organization accepts cars, boats and other vehicle types. Call beforehand, because not all locations accept every type of vehicle. The vehicles are used to help people in the organization’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers, and these donations are also tax deductible.
3. Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds – You can even donate stock securities, mutual funds, and bonds to The Salvation Army, though it requires a bit more work than dropping your clothes off at a donation center. You will need to visit their website to find information regarding whom to contact, as it differs depending on your location. This enables the organization to give you the most accurate information for the area you live in.
Since 2007, Eric Tetler has served as president of Windfield Alloy, an environmentally conscious recycling business in Lawrence, Massachusetts. He first joined the company in 1994, and 13 years later, he became its majority shareholder.
