ONTARIO, Calif., Sept. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- At the yearly leadership conference, Gathering of Eagles, Al and Hattie Hollingsworth, successful business entrepreneurs and owners of the Aldelano Corporation, will introduce Life Sustaining Solutions, an event showcasing leading-edge technology for humanitarian causes. Non-profit leaders and media will also be invited to attend. The session will take place on October 5 from 11:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m. and will feature the rollout of the Aldelano Solar ColdBox™, an industrial-grade, portable, solar-powered cold storage mini-warehouse that provides not only refrigeration and freezing capacity, but also water and ice production along with a completely renewable auxiliary power source.
In business and in ministry, Al and Hattie Hollingsworth have been solving problems, leading by example, and training the next generation for decades. Vertical Leap, a monthly adult leadership training, culminates in several intensive days of vision casting, motivation, and fellowship. This year, the Gathering of Eagles (Vertical Leap Phase II) will take place on October 5-8, 2015 at the beautiful Alhatti Christian Resort & Retreat Center in the mountains above Palm Springs, CA. The retreat will host ministry and non-profit leaders, business professionals, and community members from across the U.S. as well as Jamaica, the Philippines, Ghana, Ukraine, Indonesia, Italy, and Belgium.
Founded in 1968 by Al Hollingsworth, Aldelano Corporation is a national leader in customized assembly packaging and warehouse services and is one of the nation's leading contract packaging companies with operations nationwide. The Aldelano Solar ColdBox™ is the company's answer to the twin problems of world hunger and extensive water and food waste.
Experts estimate that 40% of the developing world's food supply is wasted, much of it because cold storage is not available. "On a national and a local scale, what separates the 'haves' from the 'have nots' is often their access to dependable infrastructure—electricity, clean water, refrigeration. The Aldelano Solar ColdBox™ was created as an alternative to this missing or unreliable infrastructure that cripples communities in the developing world," Hollingsworth says.
Hunger is just one of many problems linked to failed infrastructure. Worldwide, water-related diseases claim the lives of one out of every five children under age the age of five. The optional Aldelano Solar WaterMaker™ generates up to fifty gallons of safe drinking water each day by extracting moisture from the air. This feature, combined with the Aldelano Solar IceMaker™ and the auxiliary power feature (included on every unit), makes the Aldelano Solar ColdBox™ an ideal choice for short-term disaster relief efforts and long-term community sustainability. The technology also makes financial sense. Compared to renting and operating a comparable fuel or grid powered refrigeration unit, the Aldelano Solar ColdBox™ will yield a net gain in operating costs within 4-5 years.
During the Life Sustaining Solutions event, attendees will experience the Aldelano Solar ColdBox™ firsthand. They will have opportunities to walk inside the box, drink water produced by the Aldelano Solar WaterMaker™, and sample refrigerated/frozen foods freshly preserved inside the box. Hollingsworth and other key Aldelano representatives will be on hand to answer questions and discuss the many applications of this new technology for ministry and humanitarian purposes. Interested parties can place their orders for an Aldelano Solar ColdBox™ during the event.
Hollingsworth says. "Now is the time for people to act. We hear the cries of hungry, sick, and desperate people, and we rise up to become part of the solution."
