H.h. Gregg Partners With Frigidaire To Donate Nearly $30,000 To Midwest Food Bank

Stocks in this article: HGG

Appliance and electronics leader h.h. gregg (NYSE:HGG), along with corporate partner Frigidaire, today donates nearly $30,000 to Midwest Food Bank. The donation, which is the result of h.h. gregg’s Stock the Fridge promotion, is earmarked for protein purchases, providing much-needed meat to the food bank’s supplies. At 2 p.m. today, representatives from h.h. gregg and Frigidaire present the local food bank with the donation check for feeding local families in need.

“h.h. gregg and Frigidaire’s donation is particularly impactful, as it will go toward purchasing protein for our food bank,” said John Whitaker, executive director at Midwest Food Bank. “Protein is essential to a healthy diet and is an item rarely available to food banks such as ours, as most community food drives focus on canned foods and boxed meals. Sources for donated protein are rare, so it is vital to Midwest’s vision and mission to seek alternative partnerships and sources for healthy protein-rich items.”

As part of its ongoing h.h. gives corporate responsibility program, h.h. gregg hosted the Stock The Fridge sweepstakes in December. Customers entered to win Frigidaire appliance suites, and each entry earned a pound of protein donation from h.h. gregg. Four customers won state-of-the-art Frigidaire appliances, and h.h. gregg donates to both Indianapolis-based Midwest Food Bank and New Orleans-based Second Harvest Food Bank.

“We are proud to partner with Frigidaire to help local families in need,” said Julie Lyle, chief marketing officer, h.h. gregg. “The Stock the Fridge promotion provides h.h. gregg with an opportunity to give back to our customers, while assisting an organization whose mission is supporting health and wellness in our community.”
