Electri-Flex Teams with Community for 1,000 Thanksgiving Meal Donations
ELECTRI-FLEX COMPANY, Roselle, IL, partnered with SCARCE and Meals on Wheels of DuPage County to donate and distribute 1,000 Thanksgiving Day meals to local community residents in need this holiday season. The food drive is sponsored by Electri-Flex Company, the Roselle Police Association Foundation, the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office, Lisle Township, and SCARCE.
The quantity of food donated by local businesses, Electri-Flex employees, and community members has been outstanding. A freezer truck was required to house 1,000 frozen turkeys. Other donations include cans of corn, cranberries, boxes of stuffing, broiler pans, green beans, chili, peas, black beans, kidney beans, tomatoes, rice, gravy, potatoes, macaroni, soup, yams, and more. SCARCE and the DuPage County Sheriff’s SWAP teams sorted, boxed, and distributed these 1,000, ready-to-cook Thanksgiving Day meals to the community in the days and weeks leading up to this Holiday.
Illinois has entered a second wave of alarmingly high COVID-19 cases this November with new stay-at-home advisories issued through this Thanksgiving holiday. The Kinander Family wanted to continue to help the community and give back to those most in need. “In these unprecedented times of financial hardship and uncertainty during this pandemic, Electri-Flex Company and the Kinander Family are happy to do their part to assist,” said Jason Kinander, CEO. “Doing nothing is never an option.”
