Winning Bid For Reserve Grand Champion Pair Of Cattle Comes From Binson's

Home Health Care Centers Donation Of Food And Funds Continues Longstanding Community Support By

Binson's

CENTER LINE, Mich., Sept. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Young scholars and the homeless and working poor will be among those to benefit from a generous gift from Binson's Home Health Care Centers.

Binson's $8,000 winning bids included the Reserve Grand Champion Pair of Market Beef cattle and two additional steer at the Governor's Livestock Auction held August 29th at the Michigan State Fair. Binson's President and CEO James Binson is a long-time supporter of the Livestock Auction.

About 1140 pounds of beef derived from the cattle will be donated to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen of St. Joseph, a Detroit-based nonprofit that provides food, clothing and treatment programs for the homeless and working poor. The beef provided by the donation is enough to feed about 1,500 people who rely on the Capuchin Kitchen for hot meals.

The $8,000 from Binson's winning bids will also help the young people who raised the prize cattle attend college by being donated to 4H, a youth leadership organization operated in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The money from the livestock auction is annually pooled in a scholarship fund and distributed equally to the 4H youth that raised the auctioned cattle. James Binson helped establish the scholarship distribution structure about five years ago.

"It gives us great pleasure each year to be able to contribute to such wonderful organizations as the Capuchin Soup Kitchen and 4H," said James Binson. "The Capuchin Kitchen allows people who have hit a rough period in their lives to work towards a better life with dignity. And 4H has long allowed young people to achieve big things and strive towards achieving more.

"Supporting the work of these groups goes to the heart of our mission at Binson's -- to empower people to live better lives," Binson said.

In addition to the annual livestock auction, Binson's annually hosts or helps support the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit, the Michigan Parkinson Foundation, Gilda's Club and Habitat for Humanity.

Since 1953, Binson's has provided innovative home health programs and durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, hospital beds, incontinence products, oxygen and other therapy services. Binson's pioneered home infusion treatments and respiratory health programs in the state of Michigan that have saved consumers and government payers millions of health care dollars.

Binson's has grown from a community-based retail pharmacy to one of the largest, independent providers of home health care products and services in the United States. More than 1,500 customers visit Binson's retail facilities and joint-venture locations every day. An additional 20,000 customers a month receive health care supplies delivered to their home through the Binson's Service Plus program.
