Electrolux Makes Donation to Local Soup Kitchen
Company donates $5,000 to help serve needy Kinston community members
December 5, 2016 – Just in time for the holiday, today Electrolux made an impactful monetary donation to Mary’s Kitchen, a nonprofit that has been serving the hungry in Kinston for more than 30 years.
Electrolux donated $5,000 to help further the organization’s mission of providing a hot meal to more than 125 community members each day.
Throughout the week, the company is making holiday donations in each of the U.S. communities in which it manufactures ranges, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers and washer and dryer products under the Frigidaire family of brands and the Electrolux brand. In total, these donations amount to nearly $50,000.
“When you pass through the doors of Mary’s Kitchen, you are welcomed with a nourishing meal,” said LaTonya Smith, Executive Director, Mary’s Kitchen. “We are grateful for this donation and for the immediate help it will provide to so many families and individuals right here in our community.”
“As a company, our products enable families to enjoy a comfortable home and nourishing meals, and we want to ensure everyone has that opportunity, especially around the holidays,” said Glenda Lynch, Electrolux Kinston plant manager. “On behalf of the employees at our Electrolux Kinston plant, we are honored to give back in the community.”
The Electrolux manufacturing facility in Kinston, one of eight Electrolux factories in North America, manufactures more than one million dishwashers each year.
