Electrolux Makes Donation to Mid-South Food Bank

Company donates $5,000 to help serve needy at holiday time

December 5, 2016 –To mark the holiday season, today Electrolux made an impactful monetary donation to the Mid-South Food Bank.

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.

Electrolux donated $5,000 to help the Mid-South Food Bank fullfill its mission to support nonprofits that provide food to the needy free of charge, such as food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. Within its service area, the organization reports, 23.7 percent of children are food insecure, defined as not always having enough food to meet basic needs.

“Electrolux has been a tremendous partner to us over the years,” said Estella Mayhue-Greer, President and CEO of Mid-South Food Bank. “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.”

“In our Memphis plant, we build stoves,” said Sebastian Gulka, Electrolux Memphis plant manager, “and we are very aware that our products enable families to enjoy a comfortable home and nourishing meals. We want to ensure that everyone has that opportunity, especially around the holidays.” He added, “On behalf of the employees here in Memphis, we are honored to give back to our community.”
