Electrolux Group Donates Room Air Conditioners to Help Anderson Community Fight Summer Heat

Charlotte, NC, June 20, 2023 – Electrolux Group today donated nearly $170,000 worth of room air conditioners to Anderson Interfaith Ministries, a non-profit organization committed to meeting the needs of struggling individuals and families in Anderson County. The 600 room air conditioners are Energy STAR certified and will help local community members beat the heat this summer, while reducing energy and costs.

“There’s nothing more essential than air conditioning in the middle of a southern summer when the heat index is at its highest,” said Helton Santos, plant manager of the Electrolux Group Anderson factory. “We are proud and honored to join such a strong community partner in taking steps to help high risk populations, like infants and the elderly, stay comfortable and healthy this summer.”

Team members from the Electrolux Group South Carolina refrigeration factory added “sweat equity” to the donation by volunteering to unload the 18-wheeler truck at the Civic Center of Anderson County, putting the company’s purpose of shaping living for the better into action.

“We are so excited to partner with Electrolux Group. These air conditioners are a true blessing to our community and will be used to serve seniors and those suffering with respiratory issues. Electrolux Group – yet again – steps up to provide the resources required to serve families in need. Thank you for being such a great community partner,” said Kristi King-Brock, executive director of AIM.

Electrolux Group has been a proud member of the Anderson community for 35 years, manufacturing high quality refrigerators and freezers under the company’s Electrolux and Frigidaire brands.
