BATAVIA, Ill., Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ALDI announced today it will donate $100,000 to the American Red Cross and $50,000 to the city of Rosenberg, Texas, to help victims of Hurricane Harvey. In addition, the company is also working with Feeding America to distribute 1,000 disaster relief boxes filled with canned fruits and vegetables, granola bars, peanut butter and utensils.
Hundreds of ALDI employees packed the boxes during a service day at the company's headquarters in Batavia, Ill., to support individuals and families displaced from their homes due to natural disasters. The June event was part of the company's long-standing partnership with Feeding America to prepare essentials that could be quickly deployed when needed. Each box contains more than 35 ALDI products. ALDI is further assisting by arranging transportation of these supplies to the Southeast Texas Food Bank in Beaumont, Texas.
"It's important to help build strong communities in the places we operate and to support our neighbors in times of need," said Karla Waddleton, vice president of the ALDI Rosenberg division which includes Houston and surrounding areas. "We're committed to helping families, employees and friends recover and rebuild."
