Tickets for Turkey!

As the Sioux City Explorers hit their offseason, The X’s are working towards their 2011 season. With the holiday season coming about, the X’s staff and organization are launching their first ever, “Tickets for Turkey” promotion apart of the Season of Giving.

The goal is to be inspired by community, while giving proper inspiration right back to the community and those in need. For every ticket package sold for the 2011 season, the Explorer’s will donate a turkey to local Goodwill Industries Wall Street Mission, and Salvation Army’s for families in need during this upcoming holiday season.

“This is a great way to kick off our season of giving campaign as we know this will directly benefit members of our community in need during the holiday season,” stated Explorers General Manager, Shane Tritz.

To purchase your ticket package and help support the 1st Annual “Tickets for Turkey” promotion, simply call the Explorers at (712) 277-WINS (9467) or stop by our off-season office located at 600 Stevens Port Drive, Suite #112, Dakota Dunes, SD 57049 by November 19th, 2010, as turkeys will be delivered to The Salvation Army and Goodwill Industries Wall Street Mission on November 22nd.

This is a great way to give back to our community while setting yourself up for a summer of fun watching the Sioux City Explorer’s!

Clutter here, Clutter there, Clutter everywhere

Nothing is worse than something you don’t use taking up needed space in your house, attic, or garage.

Especially, when you will never use it again.

With technology constantly improving we are faced with the question, what do I do with the old family television or computer?  You ponder would someone want this old thing still?  Can I just throw it away?

TOld computerhe fact is, a lot of people don’t know what or how to disperse of their old electronics.  So, down at the Chamber today I called around and found out where to take these things to get them off your hands.

Option #1-Goodwill

At all their locations Goodwill will take anything computer related.  Laptops, desktops etc., they send them to Dell and they will get the parts or refurbish them.  If they work Goodwill will sell them at the store as well.  They do request that you erase your data on the PC before you bring it in.  If other electronics work, they will take them as well.

Option #2-Executive Recycling

Executive Recycling will take computers, radios, monitors, routers, keyboards, hubs, printers, telephone devices, modems, electronic motors, cell phones, automotive electronics, copiers, typewriters, televisions, and cables.  The fee will be judged on the amount of electronics you bring to them.

Option #3 Staples

You can bring basically any type of electronics to the Staples warehouse, except for televisions.  It will cost $10 for your computers and it will depend on the amount of electronics you bring.

Although, I am sure there are more options than just these three in the Siouxland area, I hope this somewhat accommodates our readers.

If anyone has any suggestions on where you take your old electronics feel free to comment at the bottom.

Do you YouTube

Here’s a good example of a Siouxland business using social media to promote their services. Goodwill Industries recently posted a video on YouTube about contract services they offer.

Does your organization want to give YouTube a try? intern@siouxlandchamber.com can help you get started.
