Whirlpool Corporation has made a donation to a special United Way fund that’s helping food pantries with the increased traffic they are seeing due to the Coronavirus. One of those food pantries is run by Harbor of Hope Church in Benton Harbor, Michigan.
“When COVID-19 hit our community, we felt committed to remain open,” said Whirlpool Corporation employee and Co-Executive Director of the pantry, Rosa Hires. “We had to change our procedures to keep our volunteers and clients safe, however, and now offer curbside, no-contact service. As with most of the world, we’ve had to become very agile with a learn-as-you-go approach. We didn’t know if we would have fewer clients because of the stay-at-home orders, or if we’d have the average number.”
