Once again Thermo King’s dealers and the corporate team raised money during the annual dealer conference to help get more meals to those who suffer from hunger. Despite this year's event being virtual, more than $66K was raised for the We Move Food's grant program.
To up the ante this year, all dealers who donated to the cause were put into a drawing for an e200 all-electric unit to donate to a food bank of their choice. Not only will the donated unit help a food bank safely transport fresh nutritional food to more people in need but it will also help to reduce the food bank's carbon footprint.
“The impact that a food bank can have is often limited by their access to transport refrigeration. We've heard stories of food banks unable to accept loads of donated fresh food because they had no way to pick-up or deliver the food into the communities they serve," said Stephanie Moncada, communications leader. "Donating an e200 unit will help them outfit a vehicle to not only accept and protect perishable loads but also operate more sustainably to protect the environment as well -- two goals that are key to our company's strategy."
Congratulations to our winning dealer Jim Marino and Thermo King of Dallas who is now looking for a home for the new e200 unit at a deserving food bank. And THANK YOU to all Thermo King Americas dealers and corporate team members who contributed to this great cause – together, we are making a difference!
More Than $70,000 in Grants Awarded to Food Banks in 2021
Donations to our We Move Food program fund the grant program, which provides financial support to food banks in communities across the United States and Canada. So far in 2021, 24 food banks have benefitted from our program thanks to generous donations from our Thermo King Americas dealer and corporate family. THANK YOU!
In September, Trane Technologies’ Thermo King was excited to contribute a $5,000 grant to the Central California Food Bank's efforts against hunger.
