Whirlpool Corporation, Whirlpool Foundation and KitchenAid® Experience donated $131,331 to the 2013 Darke County United Way Campaign. Whirlpool Corporation and their generous employees brings the United Way closer to the community’s 2013 goal of $360,000 to serve over 19,000 residents in the county. Whirlpool Corporation’s campaign, alone, serves close to 7,500 residents in Darke County’s community strengthening education, health, and stability. Whirlpool Corporation, Foundation and associates deserve a huge thank you for truly caring for this community’s neighbors in need.

Whirlpool Corporation and KitchenAid® Experience is a strong partner for Darke County United Way, making it a priority to serve our community. Whirlpool Corporation is the lead sponsor for the Annual United Way Kickoff Luncheon and Golf Outing which raised close to $15,000 this past fall, and they provide board leadership, as well as, allocation decision-making for the community to make sure donations are being allocated to programs that make a strong positive community impact. Whirlpool Corporation and Jim’s Drive In/Miami Valley Vending team up each year for United Way. Whirlpool Corporation and its associates also donate many school supplies to the United Way Day of Caring Stuff a Bus program each summer. This generosity allows Darke County students in need to have school supplies they may not be able to afford in order to be successful for learning. This past summer Whirlpool and KitchenAid® Experience raised funds for United Way making delicious taco salad and chicken salad lunches with Experience a Giving Lunch at the KitchenAid® Experience Store on Broadway.

On behalf of the Darke County United Way Board of Directors and Staff, we would like to extend a gracious thank you to Whirlpool Corporation, Whirlpool Foundation, KitchenAid® Experience, and all of their associates, for their generous support of this community. They truly provide hope to those who are struggling financially, with disease, and to our at-risk youth, and for that we at United Way are very grateful for this amazing partnership.
