Almo Corporation Gives Back to Community and Professional Industry
This summer, Almo Corporation, the nation’s leading independent distributor of appliances, consumer electronics, Pro A/V equipment and housewares, went above and beyond to participate in local-area fundraisers and volunteer outreach/service projects designed to give back to non-profit organizations in the community and professional industry.
“It is both an honor and a privilege to be able to give back to our local communities, favorite charities and industry-related organizations,” explained Warren Chaiken, president and CEO of Almo Corporation. “Our secret sauce has always been and always will be our people. Our culture is not only comprised of talented, hardworking professionals, but those with big hearts who want to make a difference in the community and for various causes by being actively involved and working together to change people’s lives for the better.”
On June 20, as part of the Almo Dealer Channel National Business Conference, Almo’s team-building time was dedicated to the Philadelphia Chapter of the Police Athletic League (PAL). The PAL organization provides safe havens for thousands of kids, some in the toughest neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia. From homework clubs, computer classes and citywide educational tournaments, to more than a dozen organized sport activities, the PAL helps children stay safe, productive and engaged in worthwhile activities. Employees worked together to build bicycles (with support from Sharp Appliances). They were presented to the PAL then distributed to children who may otherwise never have had a chance to own a bicycle.
