Experience a Giving Lunch Raises $1,422

Whirlpool Corporation, KitchenAid® Experience, and Darke County United Way teamed up to offer “Experience a Giving Lunch” on Friday, August 9th.

The lunch was delicious serving homemade chili dogs, bruschetta pasta salad, chips and cookie. Over 100 were served during this charity lunch. Whirlpool Corporation and KitchenAid® Experience ran this wonderful fundraiser to benefit the Darke County United Way and support its 27 non-profit programs in the community to strengthen education, health and stability.

Last year, these programs served over 24,000 Darke County residents. Whirlpool Corporation and KitchenAid® Experience have been loyal supporters of the United Way for many years, with a tremendous positive impact for Darke County’s community. Those enjoying lunch also had the opportunity to register to win a KitchenAid® stand blender. Congratulations to the two winners of the day were Gary Brown and Diana Zumbrink.

“On behalf of the Darke County United Way board and staff, we want to thank Whirlpool Corporation and KitchenAid® Experience for their generous support and offering Experience a Giving Lunch for the community in order to help so many in need in our community. We want to extend a sincere thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers at KitchenAid® Experience and Whirlpool Corporation,” states Lauren Henry, Executive Director at United Way. “Darke County United Way is honored to have Whirlpool and KitchenAid® Experience in our community. If you are in Downtown Greenville, please visit the KitchenAid® Experience for all of your cooking needs. We would also like to thank Eikenberry’s, Krogers, Main Street Market, Miami Valley Vending Services, Morningfresh, Wal-Mart, Whirlpool Corporation & KitchenAid® Experience, & Winner’s Meat Farm for donating supplies and food for this event.

The Darke County United Way, Whirlpool Corporation, and KitchenAid® Experience was very excited to have these companies as partners for us during this lunch, and we want to recognize them for their generous support of our community.”
