Charity Vending Machines Make It Easy To Give


Charity vending machines pop up at locations across the country. Big red vending machines are being set up in prominent locations from Honolulu to New York City to make it easier for people to give to charity. For the fourth year, the LDS Church has placed their #LightTheWorld Giving Machines in well-traveled areas in cities countrywide. The vending machines offer users the ability to easily support charities by letting them purchase items like food, clean water, health care services, shelter, bedding, skills training, and educational supplies, with prices starting at $2.

Each of the 10 locations where the Giving Machines are installed has its own list of charities that donors can choose to support. Since the program’s start in 2017, Giving Machines have raised over $9-million for local and global charities. The LDS Church covers all the costs of the machines, so 100% of the donations go to the chosen charities.

This year the machines will be set up at these locations:

  • Denver, Colorado — Writer Square
  • Gilbert, Arizona — Water Tower Plaza
  • Honolulu, Hawaii — Pearlridge Center
  • Kansas City, Missouri — Crown Center
  • Las Vegas, Nevada — Downtown Summerlin Mall
  • Nashville, Tennessee — Bridgestone Arena
  • New York City, New York — Rockefeller Plaza
  • Oakland, California — Temple Hill
  • Orem, Utah — University Place
  • Salt Lake City, Utah — City Creek Center
