By helping the environment and recycling these materials that are typically never used again they can increase to knowledge of sustainability, recycling, and overall helping the local communities.

Sonoma-USA donates a percentage of their profits to charities in the local communities.

We at Veale Outdoor will choose to have the percentage donated to the Salvation Army.

Kickstarter Campaign for Sonoma-USA

Sonoma-USA 2

 

Sonoma-USA has a Kickstarter campaign running and are asking for a pledge of $30,000.

Go check out their page and watch their video showing their wonderful products.

The products are extremely sturdy and durable with a “feel good” aspect since you would be helping the environment and local charities as well. By pledging a certain amount of money you will receive a special product made just for you. No one product is the same, it is unique to you, and no one else.

 

We at Veale are proud to start working with Sonoma-USA and are looking forward to helping spread the word about sustainability and the local communities.

Winter Lights Tree Lighting Celebration KSRO

Our General Manager Tom Jackson was just interviewed on KSRO during the Tree Lighting Ceremony Celebration in our home town of Santa Rosa, Ca.

Tom chatted about his sponsorship with the Santa Rosa Chamber and the Ceremony. Tom and owner Kirk Veale have been involved with the Chamber since the early 1990’s in one way or another. He said he loves the tree lighting because it’s a time for family to enjoy the holidays together and create memories for a lifetime.

He mentioned that Veale loves to support local and Tom is excited that a second digital billboard went live in the Sacramento area this year, reaching travelers throughout the Tahoe, Sacramento, Reno, and Wine Country areas.  Clients tell Tom that they value the new billboard space because static billboards are basically sold out in these areas and that going to digital allows businesses to reach the audience they seek – especially at this time of year.

From all of us at Veale – we wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous holiday and New Year – you can click here to hear the live interview.
