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.
P.A.L Bike Build
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.
According to Jack Halperin, senior vice president sales and customer service, Dealer Channel Division, Almo Corporation, “The feeling of accomplishment after successfully completing any task is always sweeter when you know the end result benefited those in need. We could not have been more proud being able to support PAL with the corporate generosity of Sharp Appliances as part of our 2018 Almo National Business Conference.”
Splash for Cash
On July 12, employees from the Almo Corporation headquarters paid to take turns knocking Almo executives and other colleagues into a dunk tank during the second annual Splash for Cash event to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The event included lunch provided by sponsors Sharp, Danby and Honeywell. More than $7,000 was raised over the course of the day and A Go-Fund-Me page was set up for additional contributions, 100 percent of which were provided to the American Cancer Society.
