Electrolux is helping out those in need in its Charlotte, North Carolina locale by way of $50,000 worth of donated appliances.
The first part of the delivery was made last Thursday to two recipients, both of whom are formerly homeless veterans who are now moving into their own apartments through a program with Builders of Hope.
“Our purpose is to make an everyday difference in people’s lives. We especially want to do this for the men and woman who have served our country,” said Nolan Pike, SVP and general manager, North America cooking products. “That’s why we continue to give back to the communities in which we live and work. One of the best ways to do that is to support the creation of affordable housing – something we’re hoping to do through the donation of these appliances in Charlotte.”
Local families and individuals will continue receiving the Frigidaire Gallery Smudge-Proof Stainless Steel appliances via the Crisis Assistance Ministry, which identifies those who need (but cannot afford) the essential appliances.
“We are incredibly grateful for the donation of these Frigidaire appliances and this three-way partnership that will help our community create more affordable housing options,” said Carol Hardison, CEO of Crisis Assistance Ministry. “How fitting that the first sets will help men and women who have served our nation as they regain stability and create a home of their own again.”
