Broken Shed Vodka is a small company with big plans and through this partnership with HOMH, we hope to make a difference in the lives of veterans that deserve our respect and appreciation for all that they do.”
The month-long promotion with Broken Shed Vodka and HOMH will work as follows:
- For every purchase by a liquor retailer, both on-premise and off-premise, of a 9-liter case of Broken Shed Vodka during the month of November 2020, Broken Shed Vodka will donate $12.00 to HOMH. A prorated contribution will be made for partial cases sold.
- 100% of the proceeds go toward HOMH’s program of purchasing and customizing vans for disabled vets across the country.
- This promotion will be active in the following states: CT, RI, MA, NJ, DE, MD, WI, MO, KY, TN, MN, IL, CA, NV, CO, VT, NH, ME, MI, NC and MS.
