Electrolux Provides Food for Children in Need
Company funds nearly 1,700 backpacks for needy Robertson County children
December 5, 2016 – Just in time for the holiday, today Electrolux made an impactful monetary donation to TNKids Nutrition Backpack Attack Program, which provides a backpack full of food for needy children to eat during the weekend.
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.
The company donated $5,000 to provide nearly 1,700 backpacks to children in Robertson County.
“Every backpack distributed through our program means there is one less child who will go to bed hungry during the weekend,” said Donny King, executive director, TNKids Nutrition. “We are grateful for this donation and for the help it will provide to so many children throughout the county.”
“Cooking and food is central to what we do each day we come to work,” said Mike Longe, Electrolux Springfield plant manager. “On behalf of the employees at our Electrolux Springfield plant, we are honored to give back to our community.”
