Electrolux Makes Donation to Salvation Army
Monetary donation to provide assistance to Minnesotans in need
December 5, 2016 – Today, Electrolux made an impactful monetary donation to the Salvation Army in St. Cloud, which assists Central Minnesota residents with a wide range of basic services, including a midday meal program and an emergency overnight shelter.
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.
In St. Cloud, Electrolux donated $3,500 to support the organization’s mission.
“We see first-hand the impact each donation has on our community,” said Major Mike Parker of the Salvation Army. “We are thankful for the generosity of Electrolux and for the immediate relief these funds will provide to those in need.”
“Our company’s purpose is to make a positive, everyday difference in the lives of others,” said Oscar Zertuche, Electrolux St. Cloud plant manager. “On behalf of our employees, we are honored to give back in the community.”
The Electrolux manufacturing facility in St. Cloud, one of eight Electrolux factories in North America, produces freezers.
